San Gervasio

San Gervasio Archaeological Site

Quintana Roo

The main Maya city of Cozumel, founded 17 centuries ago, controlled the island and was integrated into the intense commercial and political network of Chichén Itzá. The residential and religious complexes explored so far, along with the shrines and pyramids, attest to its significance.

As is often the case, the original Maya place name is unknown, although the Chilam Balam of Chumayel repeatedly refers to a town called Tantún Cuzamil, which could be San Gervasio and was baptized with the name of its owner.
