Photographer's Note

The PYRAMID OF KUKULCAN (El Castillo) 25 meters is high; its construction goes back to approximately 800 after J.C
This pyramid, sober, compared with other Maya buildings, testifies to great cosmological knowledge: its four faces represent the cardinal points and count 365 steps (days of the solar year), 52 panels (years of the Maya century) and 18 terraces (months of the religious calendar).
While climbing in top of Castillo, as on the preceding one photo (pente with 45 degrees!), one can enjoy a superb sight on the site and the landscape around.
