Las Monjas - Ruin Chichén Itzá - Mexico

No, nuns did not live in this building – it received that name because the Spanish thought it looked like a convent. Probably a residential palace, the impressive building dates from 880 AD. On the adjacent La Iglesia (The Church), carved stone images of a crab, an armadillo, a snail and a tortoise can be found.
