Ruins of Palenque

We loved the archaeological site of Palenque: the beautifulness and greatness of its temples reveal the history of a rich Mayan city and of legendary figures (above all, Pakal), however leaving them in the mystery. The jungle covers the ruins, creating a wonderful set. Unavoidably it’s the forest itself which becomes the main actor, with its colours and sounds. Numberless insects and birds, toucans and howler monkeys begin their own concert, while the “Palacio de las inscripciones” tell us about a healthy past: our imagination runs between the jungle and the ruins… it’s impossible not to remain fascinated.
