Uxmal Ruins - Nunnery Quadrangle (Cuadrángulo de las Monjas) - Ruin - Mexico

To the Spanish this perfectly proportioned complex resembled a convent and so they called it a nunnery. Warriors might have studied here, or perhaps astronomers and astrologers. John Stephens captured the Nunnery’s grace in 1841: "...we enter a noble courtyard, with four great façades looking down upon it, each ornamented from one end to the other with the richest and most intricate carving known in the art of the builders of Uxmal; presenting a scene of strange magnificence.” (Stephens, Incidents of Travel in Yucatán, vol. 1, p. 177-178)


Here are other activities in and around Uxmal Ruin Complex that may be of interest: Uxmal Ruins - Other sites of interest, Uxmal - Governor’s Palace (Palacio del Gobernador) and Pyramid of the Magician (Pirámide del Adivino).
