Yucatán

CHICHEN ITZÁ This controverted Mayan city was the center of the empire in the peninsula until the year 987 D.C., when the Mayan Itzaes settled in the yucateca peninsula, bringing with them the Toltec influence. From the X through the XII century, Chichen-Itza, Uxmal and Mayapan, the three principal cities of the Mayan empire from the early post classical period, made a pact called the League of Mayapan. During this time, Chichen-Itza excercised dominating power. Towards the year 1194, Mayapan took the power from Chichen-Itza and retained it until 1441, when the rebellions finished
