Xunantunich Maya Ruins

Xunantunich (Maiden of the Rock) is visually impressive and rapped by magnificent hieroglyphs…

Xunantunich was built during the peak of the Mayan civilization, the Classic Period. The center of the site is composed of 6 major plazas and surrounded by more than 25 temples and palaces. There is also a ball court. During your visit you may climb to the top of “El Castillo”, the second tallest Maya temple in Belize, towering over 130 ft above the main plaza. From the top you will have a breathtaking view of the Macal, Mopan and Belize River Valley below. The most notable feature of El Castillo is the hieroglyphic frieze that raps around the temple.
