1. Chichén Itzá in Yucatán
There are many myths about the empire of the Maya: ritual human sacrifices, predictions about the end of the world or the puzzling end of high culture around the year 1000.
The Ruined city of Chichén Itzá on the Mexican peninsula of Yucatán gives insights into the lost culture.
Named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1988, the former center of power now attracts around 1 million visitors a year. The city was presumably built around 450.
The most famous sights are the 24 m high Kukulcán pyramid and the freshwater cave (Cenoté) called Chichén Itzá.
Kukulcán is the god of resurrection and is depicted as a serpent with wings.
The pyramid has a total of 365 steps and every year at the solstice in autumn and spring a shadow in the form of a snake winds its way down the steps.
Everywhere in the city there are temple ruins and even various ball courts. According to legends, the Leader of the losing team sacrificed.
A visit to the new wonder of the world is extremely affordable at around € 2.50.
