Chichén Itzá – El Castillo


The snake heads are only on one side of the structure and they were meant to face the Sacred Well where the elite would be sacrificed


This side of El Castillo was the most exposed to the elements, therefore the steps were destroyed beyond restoration


The first sight of El Castillo
The original platform for El Castillo was discovered when digging began nearby, it was then covered with porcelain top to protect the foundation
