Xpujil Archaeological Zone

The first pieces of evidence of occupation date from 400 a. But its most important stage reaches towards the Terminal Classic, although it is possible that from the Early Classic, Xpuhil and the entire Río Bec region began to constitute a well-defined peninsular block ethnically. One characteristic that stands out in the site is that the so-called Building 1 is atypical in terms of its architecture since it has three towers instead of the two types of the Río Bec style.

Chronology: 400 a. C. to 1200 d. C. Main chronological location: Late Classic, 600 to 800 AD. C.

Recently, the Arqlgo. Vicente Suárez Aguilar has carried out the research, conservation, and archaeological salvage of groups 3 and 20 located within the urban area and current periphery of the municipal seat of Xpujil. These settlements, a total of 24, are part of the great pre-Hispanic city known as the archaeological zone of Xpuhil, which covers 6 kilometers from east to west and 2 from north to south.

Access

The town of Xpujil is located on Federal Highway No. 186, Escárcega-Chetumal. The archaeological site is very close to the town of the same name, and 9 km to the east of the archaeological zone of Chicanná there is a road that reaches Xpuhil. Another option is to go from the city of Campeche through Federal Highway No. 180 to the town of Hopelchén, and from there to the junction with State Highway No. 269, which communicates with the town of Xpujil, in the union with Federal Highway No. 186. The visitor can arrive at the site by means of public transport, however, this must walk to the entrance of the site.
