This sacred site was one of the greatest Mayan centres of the Yucatán peninsula. Throughout its nearly 1,000-year history, different peoples have left their mark on the city. The Maya and Toltec vision of the world and the universe is revealed in their stone monuments and artistic works. The fusion of Mayan construction techniques with new elements from central Mexico make Chichen-Itza one of the most important examples of the Mayan-Toltec civilization in Yucatán. Several buildings have survived, such as the Warriors’ Temple, El Castillo and the circular observatory known as El Caracol.

The ship I was on went to Mexico a year ago, in one port in Yucatan called Progreso. Two of my colleagues got the tours to Chichen Itza/Uxmal, I went to a small site called...uhm...can't remember :D After that I only had time to hang out in the port area, which was a line of souvenir shops, some of which had nice postcards but stamps were nowhere in sight.
