Palacio de Quetzalpapalotl - Ruin Teotihuacan - Mexico

The prettily named Palacio de Quetzalpapalotl (Palace of the Quetzal Butterfly, pronounced Ketzal-papo-lotluh for those who want to practice their Nahuatl) can be found on the left hand side of the Plaza de la Luna and offers an intriguing glace into the lives of the Teotihuacan movers and shakers. The colorful, carved pillars are resplendent with birds (most of them quetzals, unsurprisingly) and butterflies. Although many of the murals and frescoes in the surrounding galleries are restored, they can give us an idea of how these ancient pyramid builders viewed different concepts of art and beauty.
