La Gran Acrópolis (The Great Acropolis)

Edzná

Most of Edzná's buildings that were restored are located around the Main Square.

On one side is the Great Acropolis, a quadrangular space where the most emblematic and beautiful building of the archaeological site stands: the Pirámide de los Cinco Pisos (Five Floor Pyramid), so called because it has five staggered levels with entrances that lead to vaulted rooms and a temple on top.

In front of this great structure is the Solar Platform, used by the Mayans who inhabited the place to observe astrological phenomena.

Then, on the southern side of the Great Acropolis, is the so-called Templo de la Luna (Temple of the Moon). Another interesting building is the Templo del Norte (Temple of the North), which has a large staircase, and which, according to archaeologists, was modified on several occasions during the extensive occupation of this prehispanic city.
