Keep your heart and soul open for wonders! The city of Tulum in Mexico was of great importance to the entire Mayan civilization. The peak of the city’s dawn came in the 14th-16th centuries, when trade between the modern state of Tabasco and Guatemala flourished. The Mayans exported salt, cotton, rubber.
It is the only ancient Mayan city located on the Caribbean coast and is the only seaport of Mayan tribes. Unlike other Maya cities, Tulum remained inhabited even after conquest by the Spanish conquistadors and was abandoned in the late 16th century. It is surrounded by a wall 3-5 m high. Today Tulum is one of the brightest monuments of pre-Columbian history in Mexico. The ruins of Tulum are in the national park, where you can meet animals. For example, on one of the beaches of Tulum, turtles lay their eggs, and it is fenced and closed to the public. The territory of Tulum itself is not large, it is possible to walk only on the equipped paths, on pyramids and other constructions it is impossible to climb.
Главное здание – тулумская пирамида или замок – Эль-Кастильо находится почти у Карибского моря. Высота пирамиды составляет 7,5 метра, предположительно замок также служил маяком для кораблей.
