  North Acropolis
by windsorgirl

The North Acropolis consists of over 100 different structures, some dating back to 400 BC. The strength and stability of the Mayan structures is owed to their practice of building overtop of existing structures.

There are also two huge stone masks that have been uncovered here. Today you can see them underneath the protection of a palapa roof.

You will get an excellent view of the North Acropolis from atop Temple II.
