Some of the world’s greatest civilizations paid careful attention to the shifting seasons and even built monuments to celebrate them. The Mayan ruins at Chichén Itzá are famous for the spectacle of shadow and light at the spring and autumn equinoxes. Bring your family to the Yucatan to see this amazing ancient architecture brought to life.
Kukulkan, the snake of light, dances his way down the steps of the El Castillo pyramid.
At the base of the steps is a carved stone snake head. This carefully constructed astral phenomenon can be seen best on the equinoxes, but is still visible for the days directly preceding and after the equinoxes. The snake body is made up of 7 isosceles triangles that seem to “dance” down the stair case, headed toward the sacrificial well nearby.
The site at Chichén Itzá is six square miles of national park ruins. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that welcomes thousands of visitors year round.
