Of all the states in Mexico, Yucatan is among those with the largest number of archaeological sites. The Yucatan peninsula, including the states of Yucatan, Campeche and Quintana Roo, is famous worldwide for the monumental structures built here by the ancient Americans. In Yucatan the stones of the past have withstood the passing of time and given it one of the most beautiful archaeological landscapes in the World. The mystery of Dzibilchaltun, the grandeur of Edzna and the military pride of Chichen Itza can be found in the same region as the beauty of Labna and Tulum and the delicate magnificence of Uxmal. In each of these ancient Mayan cities stone was taken from the Earth, shaped by the hands of the Maya and raised to the heavens. The architecture of the ancient Maya of the Yucatan is testament to their admiration of and aspiration towards the eternal, a trait shared with other cultures throughout history and around the world.
