Chichen Itza Ruins
The ruins at Chichen Itza date from about 600-900 AD and are a mix of Mayan and Toltec styles.
Chichen Itza is a large pre-Columbian archaeological site built by the Maya civilization
located in the northern center of the Yucatán Peninsula, in the Yucatán state, present-day Mexico.
Archaeological data, such as evidence of burning at a number of important structures and architectural complexes,
suggest that Chichen Itza’s collapse was violent. Following the decline of Chichen Itza’s hegemony,
regional power in the Yucatán shifted to a new center at Mayapan.
