Just 75 miles from Merida the capital of the state of Yucatan are the extraordinary ruins of Chichen Itza that served as the political and economical center of the Maya civilization.
The best know ruin of Chichen Itza is the pyramid of Kukulkan that in this year was elected one of the new 7 wonders.
If by any chance you are planing to visit the ruins on March 20 th or September 21 st you will wittnes of a owsome event.
During the vernal and outumnal equinox when the sunlight faces the western site of the pyramid where is located the main stairway it causes seven isoseles triangles to form the body of a serpent that creeps downwards until it joins the serpents stone head at the bottom of the stairway.
