Ruins of Mayan city which flourished in the 7th century AD.
The city is important nowadays due to several reasons. One is a magnificent, romantic location in the middle of the jungle, on the hill overlooking the coastal plains. Another is the fact that Palenque contains some of the finest known Mayan architecture and artwork. The most interesting structures are the Palace of Palenque and Temple of the Inscriptions with important records of the history of the city and sarcophagus of Pakal – ruler of the city.
