The historical site of Uxmal is located in Mexico where the Maya Empire was settled during its grandeur age spanning between 900 and 1000 AD. At that time, the site had an extension of more than 12 square kilometers and an estimated population of around 20,000 inhabitants.
The name means “three times built”, and it is precisely for its buildings of smooth and sober walls, crowned by ornate friezes with small, perfectly fitted polished stones and of unparalleled beauty in the Maya area that it was listed by UNESCO as a WORLD HERITAGE SITE in 1996.
One of the main activities of the former inhabitants of Uxmal was agriculture. It was evidenced by the great number of chultunes (cisterns) found in the area. These tanks were used to store rainwater, which was then distributed through a system of interconnected flows similar to that used with the ditches in Mendoza today.
