IXIMCHE TECPAN

Iximche is the ruins of a pre-Columbian Mayan city. Undisturbed for several centuries and largely buried under lush vegetation, the ruins of Iximche were finally explored and partially excavated by Guatemalan archaeologist Jorge Guillemin from 1960 to 1972. Iximche's core is bounded on three sides by ravine walls and separated from the main residential area by a creek. The site consists of six plazas surrounded by temples, palaces and ceremonial platforms.
