You will meet your guide at the archaeological site of Uxmal, who will tell you a little more about these impressive pyramids. The name Uxmal means “thrice built” in Maya. This name refers to the construction of its tallest structure: the Pyramid of the Magician, which was built on top of the existing pyramids. Legend has it that the Pyramid of the Magician was built in a single night. It is very unlikely, since it consists of several structures from different eras, perhaps only the last and smallest structure at the top was built in one night and then became legend. Uxmal stands out for its monumentality, purity and fineness in its architecture and decorative art. It is perhaps the most representative city of the Puuc style, with low, horizontal palaces built around patios. The decoration is incredible, as you can appreciate the quality of pre-Hispanic art with detailed sculptures made with polished stones that form a perfect mosaic. At its peak, Uxmal was home to some 20,000 Maya.
