This well-illustrated Spanish-language book retraces the development and magnificent flowering of Mayan architecture in Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and Belize over the period 300 B.C.-A.D. 1500, showing the extraordinary synchronicity of this architecture with that of other Old World societies. Featured cities include Tikal, the earliest Mayan religious center; Palenque, famous for its ceremonial center; and Copan, with its hieroglyphic staircase featuring 2,500 glyphs.
