Cahal Pech Mayan Ruins

Cahal Pech


Cahal Pech is located on a hill overlooking the town of San Ignacio. It contains 34 structures located around several courtyards. The tallest is 77 ft and two ball courts. Investigations began in 1988 and revealed that the Cahal Pech was settled by 1200 BC. A carved monument discovered at the Cahal Pech is also the earliest carved stela for the eastern mayan lowlands. Discoveries and excavations continue on both sites presently.
