Un español enamorado de la Riviera Maya
The ancient walled Mayan city of Tulum was built on a cliff facing the Caribbean Sea, southeast of Mexico, in the state of Quintana Roo.
Within the city you can find different public and religious buildings where priests, astronomers, architects and ordinary people lived together.
The architecture of the buildings is similar to those of Mayapán and Chichén Itzá, although with characteristics typical of the region.
Among the most symbolic buildings are the Temple of the Descending God (the most symbolic building in the city), the Temple of Paintings, the House of Columns and the House of Halach Uinic.
All the buildings had murals depicting their gods and priests.
This city was in a strategic point of the Caribbean Sea, reason why the naval commerce was very important at that time.
The wall served as a refuge from external threats but also marked the differences between classes.
Undoubtedly, the Mayan Ruins of Tulum is one of the most beautiful and iconic places of the Riviera Maya, its architecture and beaches will leave you speechless.
