OUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO IN UXMAL

KABAH

Kabah was one of its satellite cities, and although it is small in size, there is little doubt that Kabah was once a large and thriving city. One of the most prominent buildings at Kabah is the Palace of the Masks. This large building´s Chenes-style facade is completely covered with 250 masks of the rain god Chac

LABNA

Like its neighbour Kabah, Labna is built in the Classic Puuc style and dates around 600-900 AD. A small and intimate site, it is filled with exquisite and intricate details and is known for its incredible artistry. The corbelled arch at Labna is famous for being one of the most intricately decorated

SAYIL

Sayil first was settled around 800 AD, possibly by small warrior groups and at its height had a population of perhaps 10,000 The Great Palace, thought to be residences for local Royal families, is superb. It is composed of three separate levels and its features are unlike other Puuc structures in the area
