The ancient city where the Mayan peoples lived and its famous pyramids belong to the new world wonders — these are the most visited sights of Yucatan.
Chichen Itza, Cancun
The ancient city where the Mayan peoples lived, was founded in the 7th century AD. It is situated in the north of the Yucatan peninsula.

Archeological excavation revealed the major Mayan architectural structures, including the Pyramid of Kukulkan, several temples, ballcourts, the observatory, the Cenote — a well for sacrifices, and the ruins of colonnades.

A remarkable fact is that this territory with the old ruins used to belong to a private landlord, who sold it to the government of the state in order to save the cultural heritage of Yucatan.

Today, Chichen Itza is one of the new world wonders. Guided tours are organized in the archeological complex.
