Within the framework of the celebration of Mexican Independence, Kukulcan Lights Up with the National Colors.
The majestic pyramid of Kukulcan in Chichen Itza shines with the nuances of the Mexican flag on the 213th Anniversary of Independence, thanks to an initiative of the Governor of Yucatán, Mauricio Villa.
The Governor of the State of Yucatán, Mauricio Villa, decided to honor the 213th anniversary of Mexican Independence by illuminating one of the most iconic monuments in the country, the Kukulcán pyramid in Chichen Itza, with the emblematic colors of the national flag: green, white and red.
Known for its grandeur and listed as one of the Seven Wonders of the World, this famous building was dressed up in an emotional ceremony steeped in symbolism and deep meaning.
The light show, which bathed the ancient stones of the pyramid in the tones of the Mexican flag, became the focus of attention of both local inhabitants and foreign visitors.

The event was not only a visual gift but also a powerful declaration of the historical and cultural relevance of Mexico’s independence process. Mauricio Villa, with this, wanted to remind the Mexican people and the entire world of the struggle and sacrifice of the heroes who faced oppression to achieve the freedom and sovereignty that the country enjoys today.
A Connection between the Pre-Hispanic Past and Modern History
It is especially significant that the choice of site for this event was Chichén Itzá, one of the most important cities of the Mayan civilization, thus linking the rich pre-Hispanic history with the fight for independence and national identity of Mexico.
This has not only generated an international impact, but has also served to strengthen the feeling of patriotism and belonging at a time when unity and recognition of cultural diversity are more necessary than ever.
