The Mayan’s Palenque in Pictures.

(Mexico) – Only 2% of Palenque can be seen, the rest is under the jungle and the hills. For the little we were able to see, the Mayan City in the state of Chiapas is magnificent. You have to be there, you have to see it and smell it to fully understand its grandiosity. Here is Palenque in Pictures. Credit: Lupita Peimbert @Lupitanews #Lupitanews

In Palenque, the Mayans prayed, loved, sacrificed, worked, prophetized. You have to be there, you have to see it and smell it to fully understand its grandiosity.

To go to Palenque:

Travel to Mexico City. Then take a flight to  Tuxtla Gutierrez, then a bus or drive to San Cristobal de Las Casas and go from there –about 5 hours on a truly bumpy road. Some people go to Palenque from Tuxtla Gutierrez or Villa Hermosa (Tabasco.). It is worth and advisable to spend at least one night in Palenque, so that you get to see the ruins one day, and check the town and/or go further in the jungle the next one.
