Decoding Palenque: The Clues Left Behind by the Maya Civilization

Palenque is the second Mexican place on the list and also a Mayan city.

The city is located in the south of Mexico and flourished in the 7th century. In the city there are many buildings with bold Mayan architecture, including pyramids.

Due to the fall of the Maya empire, the city was abandoned and gradually invaded by the forest. In the 19th century, people discovered and focused more attention on Palenque.

After many excavations and restoration efforts, Palenque became an archaeological site and popular tourist destination. UNESCO recognized Palenque as a World Heritage Site in 1987.
