Wandering in the park
The most preserved (or reconstructed pyramid is the top attraction of a wide park of Maya ruins, that has been considered one of the new 7 wonders of the world. Well it is a wonder, but… in the top 7?
Well, I was coming from Uxmal, and I was not so strongly impressed. But I surely recommend it. Even if it deserves only to be the 8th of the 7 wonders.
Known locally as “lo castillho”, Spanish word for castle, this high and steep pyramid was a temple dedicated to Kukulcan.
Carefully restored it must be the most known Maya monument, dominating a large yard with several other interesting buildings.
Built after the 11th century, it was used to sacrifices and you will not escape from listening histories and legends about it and its serpents.
