UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1988
The pre-Hispanic city of Chichen Itza was the most prominent capital of the Mayan area, at the end of the Classic period and the beginnings of the Postclassic period. Upon the arrival of the Spaniards, it was constituted as the most revered center of worship and pilgrimage in the Yucatan Peninsula. Today, it is a Sacred Center for the Maya. The archaeological site is cultural heritage of Mexico, and due to its importance was recognized internationally, when it was declared and inscribed on the list of World Heritage by UNESCO, in 1988.
The archaeological site of Chichen Itza is a source of invaluable data for knowledge of the pre-Hispanic past. Due to its beauty and uniqueness, it is a cultural reference for all Mexicans and, to a large extent, a symbol of indigenous and national identity. Today, it is also a tourist destination for more than a million people who visit it every year. The most prominent building of the metropolis is the Pyramid of Kukulcán, which has become an emblem of Mayan culture worldwide.
