    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    Take a walk through one of the Seven Wonders of the World, through the history of one of the great civilizations that shaped a continent through millennia. Learn about their life, religion, architecture and astronomic mastery.
    We'll visit the pyramid of Kukulkan - an incredible construction designed with mathematical precision to serve as a calendar as well as a proof of power for the elite, and a show for the masses. Stop at the Observatory, a unique circular construction that served to study the orbit of planet Venus; a planet they worshipped as the Sun’s twin. Admire the magnificence of the Great ball court, which is the largest ever built by any Mesoamerican culture and was central in the religious and social life of the Maya, Aztec, Toltec and every other pre-Columbian civilization throughout thousands of years. These and other amazing temples and structures are waiting for you to discover in Chichen Itza; the city of the wizards of the water, and the epicenter of the cult to Kukulkan; the feathered serpent.
