UNESCO World Heritage-listed pre-Hispanic city of Uxmal

You’ll be amazed by the design and building precision inherent in the towering Pyramid of the Magician at Uxmal, constructed to centre on the helical rising of Venus, amongst other astronomical alignments. These Mayan ruins are another beautiful example of how ritual events and cycling natural processes dictated the lives of the Maya. The pink limestone palace set on a high plinth above the surrounding land is a startling, intricately designed construction, but you’ll be just as dazzled by the setting sun’s rich light across the ruin’s pink limestone and the panoramic vista of the land below, while standing atop this steep, manmade mountain.
