The pre-Columbian city today known as Copán is a locale in western Honduras in the Copán Department, near to the Guatemalan border. It is the site of a major Maya kingdom of the Classic era.
The kingdom flourished from the 5th century AD to the early 9th century, with antecedents going back to at least the 2nd century AD.
The site in Copan is known for producing a remarkable series of portrait stelae most of which were placed along processional ways in the central plaza of the city and the adjoining acropolis. The stelae and sculptured decorations of the buildings of Copán are some of the very finest surviving art of ancient Mesoamerica.
Many structures are elaborately decorated with stone sculptures, usually constructed from a mosaic of carved stones of a size that one person could carry.
I think that writing about these cultures would never be enough coz they are so magnificent and rich in history....im really really amazed with these civilizations!
