Favorite thing: The ITZAES settled in Chichen-Itza in the 9th century A.D. Believed to be puton or chontal mayas, they forged a wide empire with one culture centered in Chichen-Itza. Around 1250 A.D. the city was abandoned for reasons still not completely understood. The power of this city was so great, that centuries after its fall, it is still a site of adoration.
