The Center of Town

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by raherahn on December 6, 2007

The Great Plaza is where we began and ended our Tikal meanderings. Coming from the entrance to the park, the trees clear to the back of the Plaza. Ascending around the pyramid's left side you enter the Plaza along the wide green lawn. Two pyramids rise on either side, facing each other as fraternal twins. On opposite sides of the pyramids are stairs leading away to other buildings. In front of them rise the stela, well beyond their glory days. The massive stone constructions frame the plaza, accentuating it size. An amazing place to sit under the shade of a tree, taking in the grandeur before continuing to explore the city of Tikal.
