Maya ruins from Mexico: Chichen Itza

Chichen Itza is one of the most visited archaeological sites in Mexico; an estimated 1.2 million tourists visit the ruins every year.

Chichen Itza was founded in the 6th century (around 550 AD) by the Maya civilization, as a ceremonial center. The name is Mayan for “at the mouth of Itza’s well” and apparently comes from Itza, the name of an ethnic group very powerful at that time.

The Kukulkan Pyramid in Chichen-Itza was elected one of the seven wonders of the world in 2007.
