The beautiful “Puuc” site of Uxmal (Map this!)

Uxmal is an example of what is considered the most aesthetic of Mayan architectural styles, the Puuc. The lower portion of the building façades are unadorned, while the upper façade is richly decorated with figures from Maya mythology, feathered serpents being quite prominent. Long-nosed masks of the Maya rain god Chaac are also found on Puuc buildings.
