Hopelchén

Very close to Hopelchén there are still a number of archaeological remains such as Santa Rosa Xtampak, considered the pre-Hispanic city of the Region of Los Chenes.

It occupies 9 square kilometers (3.5 square miles) and is located on a natural elevation. In the area, several buildings are preserved, practically all of which are known as Chenes architecture. Among its main structures are El Palacio, the building with a snake mouth; the Casa Colorada, the Cuartel, and the Cuadrángulo del Sureste.

You can also visit Dzibilnocac, which in English means “big written turtle”, an abandoned site in 1842 comprising an area of one kilometer (half a mile) with vaulted buildings and other structures such as the temple-palace where vestiges of mural paintings were found.

Here you can see masks representing El Monstruo de la Tierra (The Earth Monster ) and Chaac, the Mayan god of rain.
