El Tajin - Estado de Veracruz, Mexico

The pyramids and other structures of El Tajin lie among the lush green hills near the town of Papantla in the Mexican state of Veracruz. The site was abandoned around 1200 AD by the Totonacs.

In a country full of fine archeological sites, El Tajin is the northern most of the handful of truly outstanding locations.

In 1992, El Tajin became the tenth location in Mexico named as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. There are now 26 sites in Mexico on the list.
