Once an important center of the ancient Maya culture where exceptionally well-preserved structures stand up to this day. It could be founded as early as 500 AD and inhabited until the 1550s, flourishing in 700 – 1100 AD. The architecture of Uxmal is considered to be of very high quality visually and structurally and belongs to the best achievements of Puuc style.

Impressive buildings are The Governor’s Palace with the longest façade in ancient Mesoamerica, the Adivino – surprising pyramid with ovate sides and Nunnery Quadrangle – governor’s residence with interesting façades.
