Visit to the archaeological zone of Palenque - Villahermosa
Visit to the archaeological zone of Palenque: The city of Palenque, located on the first rise of the Tumbala Mountains, the site looks out over the Usumacinta River flood plain. On arrival at the site, prepare to be confronted by the largest Mesoamerican step pyramid, the Temple of Inscriptions, spotted with hieroglyphics that have contributed significantly to the study of Mayan civilization. The site is surrounded by beautiful natural areas for the visit of the archaeological site of Palenque, where you can admire the Mayan buildings like the Temple of the Inscriptions, the Palace, the Temple of the Red Queen, and The Temple of the Cross foliated and The Sun Temple.
In its heyday, Palenque was a sprawling religious center that spanned nearly 25 square miles. Only roughly half a mile has been excavated, revealing what many consider to be the architectural apogee of western Mayan civilization. The knowledge that there's so much yet to be excavated at Palenque is, surely, part of the site's enduring charm. Return to hotel or airport Villahermosa.
