Sitio Moral Reforma

Moral-Reforma Archaeological Site


It was a Maya city that flourished on the banks of the San Pedro Mártir River. In its beginnings, around 300 BC, it was a mandatory stopover for navigators of the time to bypass the river rapids by land.

Its Moral-Reforma architecture is in the Petén style and is similar to that of Calakmul, with a predominance of the volume of the pyramidal base in relation to the building.

It receives this name due to the abundance of mulberry trees and its location in the Reforma-Provincia ejido.
