CULTURAL IMPORTANCE

 

Calakmul was discovered at the beginning of the 30s of the last century, but it was not until the 1980s that systematic research allowed us to discover the essence of this city as one of the most important of the Classic Maya. The most recent investigations have concluded that Calakmul is the most important city of the Classic Maya and together with Tikal and Palenque they headed the political organization of the highlands. Hieroglyphic studies have shown a history of wars between Calakmul and Tikal for almost a century of history, which speaks of the political rivalry of these cities. There is a unique urban planning, with large ceremonial plazas and residential complexes.

It is also the site where a greater number of stelae have been found in the Mayan area, many of them from the Late Preclassic period (400 a.C.).
