I’m inviting you today to take a virtual trip with me to Mexico and see The Kukulkan Pyramid in Chichen-Itza.
Chichen Itza was one of the largest Maya cities, and today the ruins of Chichen Itza are federal property. This beautiful archaeological site is located in the municipality of Tinum, in the Mexican state of Yucatán. Translated, Chichen Itza means “at the mouth of the well of Itza“ and is today Mexico’s second most visited archeological site.
The Kukulkan Pyramid, also known as “El Castillo” (The Castle) was included in 07.07.2007 among new seven wonders of the world.
The pyramid has exactly 24 m. high considering the upper platform, but keep in mind that Chichen Itza provides other lovely and interesting archaeological sites, all having the Mayan Culture print.
Also, as our friend Dan Mitea, who was kind enough to send us the photos included in this post and in the series on Chichen Itza, told us that people living in that area knew for a fact that December 2012 wasn’t the end of the world, but the end of a historical cycle. They actually hated that the world made such a big fuss and drama over that particular date and considered it as the end of the world.
Coming back to the pyramid, it is worth mentioning that it is s located in the Peninsula of Yucatan, in the Yucatan State, Mexico, between Valladolid and Merida and is just120 km from Merida.
We’ve presented you here the Grand Sirenis Resort, where you’ll most definitely stay when you’ll visit this pyramid. We show you today the lovely and impressive pyramid and we will also have a third part in this series ;).
