Yucatán is a Mexican state famous for its beaches on the Gulf of Mexico and the Mayan ruins. The famous Chichén Itzá encompasses a massive pyramid, a ball court, and stone temples. Other Mayan sites are Ek Balam, famous for well-preserved sculptures, and Uxmal, with its intricate carved facades. The capital and largest city of Yucatán, Mérida, has a colonial history that is reflected in buildings such as the 16th century Mérida Cathedral.
