Nakbé - Monument El Mirador - Guatemala

Nakbé lies about 13 km (8 miles) south of El Mirador and is connected to it (and other smaller cities) by a causeway. The ancient city was founded around 1000 B.C., earlier than El Mirador, and its downfall occurred around the same time as its larger counterpart. It is almost equally difficult to get to as El Mirador, and was only discovered by aerial photographs in 1930. Excavations didn't begin in earnest until the 1980's. The ancient city is home to fewer impressive structures than El Mirador, and is considerably smaller in size. However, Structure I, standing at 157 ft. (48 meters), is a sight to behold.
