Edzna is located in the north of the Mexican state of Campeche and it is a fascinating Mayan city.
Edzna also has one of the most sophisticated Mayan systems for channeling and retaining water.
The word Edzna means “House of the Itzas” a civilization that inhabited this region before they went in Chichen Itza.
Very early this place was occupied and it is said that ,around 600 BC, the first settlers arrived before becoming a major city a few centuries after.
The top sightseeing and most beautiful and awesome is the Great plaza of edzna which is a spectacular elevated platform with different structures.
Within the cool plaza there is a structure over 30 meters tall called the Piramide de los Cinco Pisos "pyramid of the five floors."
I could not wait but climbing on top of it to admire the beauty of this wonderful place.
I visited also the Small Plaza just south of the Great one.
It is an elevated platform pretty similar to the Great Plaza and probably some of the oldest at Edzna.
Around this area, the Temple of the Relief Stairways is the largest "Piramide" at
the Small plaza.
Edzna is definitely a small site to explore but worth of a visit if ,by chance, you end up somewhere in the pretty state of Campeche.
