Chichen Itza

Built to a scale that seems from another world, Chichén, one of the new seven wonders of the world, has some of the largest buildings of the ancient Mayan cities. It had a port near Río Lagartos and grew rich from trading. With a large population of over 40,000, it became the most powerful city in the whole of the Yucatán in the last centuries of the Classic Mayan era (AD 750–950), defeating Cobá, Izamal, and others in war. A visit to these great ruins is not to be missed.prac_info8am–5pm daily • www.chichen.com.mx
