Sitio Arqueológico de Bonampak

Bonampak Archaeological Site

Chiapas

Bonampak is famous for its extraordinary murals, depicting scenes of war, tribute payments, and the capture of prisoners for sacrifice. The pre-Hispanic city covered just over 3000 hectares.

Bonampak features a central plaza surrounded by relatively low religious, administrative, and residential buildings. A stela in the plaza, along with others located on the steps of the Acropolis, showcases exceptional craftsmanship. To the south of the Grand Plaza stands the Acropolis, a large, stepped platform with a height of 46 meters.
