Definitely the best known ruins of the Mayan civilization. Built between the 11th and 13th centuries and still shrouded in mystery. A curious case: on the sides of the staircase of "El Castillo" (the best known structure of the place) during the equinoxes, at sunset the natural shadow of the feathered snake can be seen. Another reason to visit it is certainly the fact that it has been included in the list of the seven wonders of the world and UNESCO heritage, thus becoming the obligatory stop during the trip to Mexico!
