EDZNÁ

Archaeological Site

House of the Itzáes

It has magnicent architectural groups such as the Great Acropolis, and great buildings, especially the so-called Five Floors. Their habitants developed a complex hydraulic system that allowed them to have water all year round. It became a powerful regional capital between the years 400 and 1000.

•     Specialists point out that here the calendars used during the Classic period in the north and south of the Mayan area were adjusted.

•    Some of the crops detected in this area are corn, pumpkin, amaranth, nopal, cassava and chili, whose use dates from before our era.

The Mayans of Edzná created a city that, over time, allows us to see the control of the environment and the development of various architectural styles.

The site is located 55 km southeast of the city of San Francisco de Campeche.
