Sitio Arqueológico de Mayapan

Mayapan Archaeological Site

Yucatán

The last great city of the ancient Maya, walled, a reflection of Chichén Itzá when it had already fallen. Home to up to 12,000 inhabitants, founded thirteen centuries ago, with notable buildings influenced by Maya-Toltec styles but with distinctive features, and featuring unexpected, valuable mural paintings.

This great Maya capital exerted its dominance over the provinces in the northwest and central-north part of the Yucatán Peninsula.
