Quick Reference

[Si]

Maya ceremonial centre of the late Classic period in Yucatán. The best‐known structure in the centre is the Codz Poop palace, a range of buildings whose façade is covered with long‐nosed masks. Little is known about the history of the site, although its main occupation seems to have been in the 8th to 10th centuries ad, after which it was abandoned. A paved causeway or sacbe linked the site to the nearby city of Uxmal.
