Chicanna Campeche Mexico Mayan Ruins

Photography by Bill Bell

Chicanna was erected at the base of the Yucatan Peninsula. Its builders took advantage of a slight natural elevation to construct several groups of structures which served as rooms and enclosures for carrying out ritual ceremonies.

 Discovered in 1966, the name alludes to the House of the Serpent-mouth. Occupation at it height dates from 300 B.C. to 250 A.D. with the last stages likely around 1100 A.D.

 Chicanna is one of 45 sites located in the region of the Rio Bec.  It is well known for its enormous representation of Itzamna, principal god of the Maya pantheon, also known as the Earth Monster, on the fašade of the lower construction.
