The Place of Corn
Hochob is a small yet interesting Maya archaeological site situated about an hour's drive southwest of Campeche. The principle structure is fronted by a stylized mask, which has a doorway for the mouth, serrated teeth, swirly eyes and an array of dizzying symbols. Maya structures featuring the masked facade are a regional architectural style found in southern Campeche, called Chenes. These sites in general do not contain large, mountainous structures like Chichen Itza or Tikal. Chenes sites have smaller courtyards and ceremonial platforms that are encased in highly ornate stone art.
