I was lucky to visit Palenque - one of the most famous and visited archaeological sites in Mesoamerica in January of 2011. It is the norhtwesternmost city-state in the Maya World, set at the edge of the Yucatan plainlands.
Palenque was a Maya city state in southern Mexico that flourished in the 7th century.

    The Palenque archaeological site is huge, much bigger I think than Chichen-Itza which I have seen. The Grand Palace is amazing. I must try to see this the next time we go to Mexico.

      Thank you, Lori! I suppose Palenque isn't less interesting than Chichen-Itza and you will be able to see it in your next visit to Mexico.

      Thank you, Andrey! Yes, Palenque as the Maya civilization seemed to me more pleasant place in the green jungle in comparison with Aztec Teotihuacan in the mountain desert...
