Ruta Puuc | Puuc Route
Maya architecture differs by area and historic period. The architectural tradition known as Puuc features intricate facades and mosaics rising from concrete foundations. The style's largest representative site, Uxmal, is justly acclaimed for impressive structures like the so-called “Pyramid of the Magician” and “Nun’s Quadrangle.” That said, every Puuc site offers something unique, from masks depicting the rain god Chac at Kabah, Labná’s arched gateway or the Grand Palace at Sayil. Though not representative of the Puuc style, the fascinating Maya paintings at nearby Loltún Cave also merit a stop-in.
