Chichen Itza History

(Mayan: (Chichén) Boca cistern of (Itza) warlocks of water) is one of the major archaeological sites of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico.

Located in the municipality of Tinum, in the state of Yucatan. Important and renowned relic of the Mayan civilization, the main buildings that remain there correspond to the period of the decline of the Mayan culture known to archaeologists as the post-classical period.

The massive architecture that has survived to this day and is now emblematic of the site, has a distinct Toltec influence. The presiding god of the site, according to Mayan mythology, is Kukulcan Mayan representation of Quetzalcoatl, god taken from the Toltec culture pantheon. That said, consider that Chichen Itza was a city or a ceremonial center, which went through various periods constructive and influences of the various peoples who occupied it and promoted it from its foundation.

The archaeological site of Chichen Itza was inscribed on the list of World Heritage Site by Unesco in 1988. On July 7, 2007, was recognized as one of the New Seven Wonders of the modern world, by a private initiative without the support of Unesco, but with the recognition of millions of voters around the world.
