Chichen Itza Archaeological Zone

Chichén Itzá is the best example of the migratory movements that occurred in Mesoamerica towards the Early Postclassic since it brings together features of the material culture of both the Mayan area and central Mexico, particularly those of Toltec descent. In addition, Chichén Itzá was the capital of an extensive territory of the Yucatán Peninsula, led by the Mayapán League, from 987 to 1200 AD. C.

The archaeological site of Chichén Itzá is world famous for the play of light and shadow that occurs at each equinox on the steps of the pyramidal base known as El Castillo. In this, the sun, as it rises over the horizon, illuminates the western basement beam, creating triangles of light and shadow that appear to descend to the head of the serpent on the roughness of the railing. This event, achieved from the correct orientation and inclination of the basement plans, shows the great level of astronomical and architectural knowledge that the Mayans possessed, and that has turned out to be one of the most studied cultures and regions around these issues. , in addition to the territorial political organization and the exploitation of resources. Chronology 525 to 1200 AD C. Principal chronological location: Early Postclassic 900 to 1200 AD. C.
