Uxmal is a United Nations World Heritage site. The pre-Hispanic city was built amidst rolling hills, its temples steeped in mystery. The Governor's Palace, The Pyramid of the Soothsayer and the Nun’s Quadrangle are just a few of the buildings that will capture your imagination with their splendor.
At its height, Uxmal was home to about 25,000 Mayas. Like other Puuc region sites, the city flourished from 600-1000 AD. The name Uxmal means 'thrice-built' in the Mayan language, referring to the many layers of this imposing structure.
Uxmal was considered by architect Frank Lloyd Wright to be the supreme expression of art in architecture in Mesoamerica.
