The Name “Uxmal” means: “That which was built three times” or “Place of abundant harvest” and is located 78 km from the city of Mérida along the highway to Campeche.
The Mayas channeled their social energy into construction, creating fabulous buildings.
Uxmal is the site of one of the most representative constructions of this style: “The Governor’s house”, holding in its elliptical form a large number of enigmas still to be discovered, is considered by experts as a wonder of the ancient world for its precision and architectonic beauty.
The Majestic structure invites the visitor to discover all the revelations of the different constructions of this amazing civilization.
