The Mayan pyramids and monuments of Uxmal are particularly well preserved, and considered some of the most beautiful in the Yucatan.

Scattered across the archaeological site are stepped pyramids, palaces, ball courts and quadrangles. Perhaps the best known structures are the stepped Great Pyramid and the unusually rounded Pyramid of the Magician.

A nightly sound and light show brings the magic of Uxmal to life, focusing on the Pyramid of the Magician.
