Copán (Honduras)

rsz_copanhdrThe main Mayan site in Honduras is situated about 11 kilometers from the border with Guatemala.
Copán reached its height during the Classic Period. This is reflected by the numerous stelaes with the representations of former Kings and mythical animals. The stelaes contain inscriptions that include dates of birth, marriage, battles, deaths, etc.

The site is very well maintained and its many attractions include, plazas, religious temples, residential areas and a beautiful restored ball court but the most impressive monument is the Hieroglyphic Stairway which consists of 64 steps with more than 2500 hieroglyphic signs, the longest Mayan writing ever found.
