The Guide covers the entire history of Chichen Itza on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico was the centre for the Mayan Empire for hundreds of years.

The ancient city was a center for commerce and trade, religion, culture and the political powers for a vast period of time.

Chichen Itza had large stadiums, massive temples and religious buildings, but also administrative buildings/offices as well. It’s believed that the city area was vast, but most of the buildings have not left any notable ruins behind, except for the buildings that can be seen at the museum today.

The city’s water supply came from cenotes filled from underwater rivers, and like many other cultures, the water was considered sacred. One of the cenotes was believed to give access to the world of the ancient gods, which is why many sacrifices, including human sacrifices, were made at the Sacred Cenote.
