  El Castillo
by catkin

El Castillo also known as Pyramid of Kukulkan dominates the site. Each side of the pyramid has a stairway of 91 steps and including the top platform makes a total of 365.
If you can make it to the top of the pyramid (its bloody steep!), I am told the views are spectacular. I made the mistake of looking down when I was part way up and suddenly thought-oh *** I?ll never make it down. I did, but I had to come down on my backside!
