The legendary Mayan city of Chichen Itza is home to a vast number of structures, only some of which are accessible to the public.
One of the most enigmatic corners of this site is “Chichén Viejo”, also identified as ‘Initial Series’. This area, which was once the residential core of the most distinguished Mayans, has been the subject of research since 1997 and, after almost 30 years of detailed study, was inaugurated on September 22.
This architectural section includes residences and smaller buildings such as:
- The Temple of the Owls
- The Monkey Gallery
- The Temple of the Phalluses
- The House of the Moon
- The House of Snails
- The Temple of the Initial Series
- And a chultún, a palpable representation of the advanced hydraulic system of this ancient culture.
