Discover the culture, history and architecture of a civilization comparable to the ones of Ancient Greece and Egypt. Explore Maya cities partially excavated by archaeologists, of which several remain a work in progress and under study. The Mayas invented a complex writing and they built vast and imposing cities but they were also among the greatest and most precise astronomers and mathematicians of their time. The Mayas of today preserve many features of characters of their ancestors; from the lowlands of Yucatan to the highlands of Guatemala and Chiapas you will discover a proud and creative people amazingly well adapted to the various environments and conditions of the modern world. From the Yucatan beaches to the colourful markets of Guatemala, exploring the greatest archaeological sites of the Mesoamerica, meet the Mayas of today and the treasures left behind by their predecessors...
