Chichen Itza is located in the northern Yucatan Peninsula, near the city of Valladolid, Yucatan.

It is one of the most important of the ancient Mayan civilization and developed in stages, of which there still are monumental remains. The area has evidence of Toltec influence, both in art and architecture. Chichen Itza is considered to reach the peak in two stages: the first between 600-900 d. C. when Puuc style buildings were built, and the second to the arrival of the Putun, who emigrated from Campeche in the tenth century.

The most famous buildings on the site are: The Castle, the largest and most important structure. The ladders finish at the bottom with two snake heads, same look come to life at every equinox, when the sun casts its rays on the building, forming triangles of shadow that simulate the body of the snake temple down to earth. The Temple of the Warriors, composed of the Temple of Chac Mool and a set of pillars, each carved with representations of priests and warriors. The Observatory, the Temple of a Thousand Columns, the Tzompantli, the Dzib Akab, and the Temple of the Jaguars, are other important buildings.

Chichen Itza also has the great Sacred Cenote which jade objects have been found, pottery and even skeletons of human beings, especially children, who were offered to the god Chac.
