Juego de Pelota

A view of one of the two stone rings located at the Great Ball Court in Chichen Itza.

 

Seven courts for playing the Mesoamerican ballgame have been found in Chichen, but the one about 150 meters to the north-west of the Castillo is by far the most impressive. It is the largest ballcourt in ancient Mesoamerica. It measures 166 by 68 meters (545 by 232 feet).

 

Don't forget to cast your vote for Chichen Itza to become one of the New Seven Wonders:
