(12 Shots) | Uxmal was a Maya City, roughly from 500 A.D. till 1550 A.D.. It’s in the state of Yucatán; about 62 km south of its capital Mérida. The architectural remains were in pretty good shape. Main attraction was the The Pyramid of the Magician. It’s about 40 m. high and the steps of it’s stairs are extremely inhuman. There was a chain you could hold on to, when you wanted to climb the stairs.
The Governor’s Palace was a heavy, long building on a base. The upper half had a great relief of repeating patterns and symbols. Reminded me of the great reliefs of Mitla; but here they were more complex and on a larger scale.
Nunnery Quadrangle was actually a government palace. It was a huge building around a square courtyard that felt like a soccerfield with its short, green grass. The ornaments and reliefs on its facades were incredible.
