Calakmul well preserved and unaltered Mayan capital city, is located in the region of the low lands of the south part of the country. It was one of the two most important Mayan cities along twelve centuries, until the centre of power moved to Yucatan. It provides crucial evidence about the art and the architecture, the history and the urban planning of the period. Its numerous commemorative stele, are excellent example of the Mayan art and they provide valuable data on the political and spiritual
development of the city.
