Copán, Honduras

Today we visited another great site of the Maya civilization: Copán, situated in western Honduras, close to the border with Guatemala.

 

After crossing the border (which turned out to be easy, we heard that can be different!) we attended a guided tour with a great guide, Maurizio, speaking English very well and giving a lot of information. We walked around the whole site and visited the East and West Yard, Temple XXII, the Yard of the (covered) Stair of the Hieroglyphics and finally the Great Plaza and the Ball Game area.

 

You can read a lot about Copán (and the Mayan culture) in books and on the internet. I will only show some photos.
