Izamal is a small city that has been continuously occupied since the time of the Maya.It was visited by Catherwood and Stephens towards the end of their second journey through the Yucatan. At that time Catherwood drew one of the large stucco heads, all of which have subsequently disappeared.
The pyramid of Kinich-Kakmo, illustrated here, is one of the largest structures in the Yucatan in terms of its footprint on the ground and its volume.
