Honduras: Copan

Visit Us

Copán is one of the most impressive Mayan ruins in Mesoamerica and lies at the eastern limit of the empire.  It is not as immense as the sites of Tikal (Guatemala) or Chichén Itzá (Mexico) but here, beneath the tentacles of greedy jungle vegetation, the craftsmanship has survived the vagaries of time - most impressively the intricate carvings of 21 stone columns, or stelae. distributed among the temples and ball courts. The renowned hieroglyphic stairway has 1,250 blocks carved with glyphs - the longest inscribed text in the New World.  Copán fell into decline soon after its apogée in the 8th century.
