Chichen Itza Premier - Hotel Ground Transportation Included, Sightseeing & Tours
Chichen Itza Premier - Hotel Ground Transportation Included
Tour provided by Amstar
This world famous archaeological site, which was founded in 525 AD, has been recently recognized as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. The site includes multiple buildings, but the most famous and powerful is known as "El Castillo" (the castle) or Pyramid of Kukulcan. Every year in March and September, with the equinox, a light-and-shadow effect appears at sunset on the temple. It is produced by the successive projection of shadows cast by the building's platforms, that create seven triangles of sunlight, that together resemble the undulating body of a serpent descending the pyramid, as the seventh triangle coincides with the reptile's head that is near the bottom of the stairs. You simply must take the opportunity to visit Chichen Itza, the most important archaeological zone in Yucatan.
Chichen Itza which means "at the mouth of the well of Itza ", is the 2nd most visited archeological site of Mexico today. The Kukulkan Pyramid in Chichen-Itza which is known as "El Castillo" (the castle), is one of the new seven wonders of the world elected in 07.07.2007.
