The abuse coming up many people was leaving footprints in the stairway, to today no longer possible to climb to the top, but I show you some pictures.templo de los gerrerospiramide el castillo

The “Castle” pyramid stands as a high mountain on a plain where there is no natural mountains, the view is phenomenal.

Considered one of the seven wonders of the modern world, does not need much presentation, either in the equinoccio (21 March) or on the Solstice (21 September) its amazing location and exact construction makes the shadow of its corners to discover the shape of a snake in the walls of the stars and look that get down from the top of the pyramid and symbolically from the sky.

Kukulkan means Feathered Serpent, the representation of the Mayan God in the pyramid is an experience that leaves us more questions than knowledge, who was these extraordinary constructors, astronomers and mathematicians?, who managed to create a spectacular representation of their knowledge in a building that still look extraordinary today.

Chichen Itza for our fortune is much more than the majestic pyramid of “the Castle”, has the most spectacular ball game of the Mayan world , has the Observatory as its name implies was part of the buildings helped the Mayas to record the movements of the stars than as great astronomers still amazes us its accuracy.

Stop in front to the “cenote” and imagine the ceremonies that Mayas did in honor of their gods, feel, see, smell, never forget this experience.
