- Type: Pyramids and Tombs
NileGuide Expert Says:
This is a magical place. If you're not claustrophobic, enter the site by the tunnels, it's an amazing experience to be inside a real pyramid.
NileGuide Expert tip:
The only restrooms on the site are at the beginning of the visit so unless you want to walk the whole site up and down many times, go there if you feel like going. Trust me!
- This is the second step when you visit the Pyramid, after you go out the tunnels.
Behind the hill are some segments of the pyramid that have been dug up and restored. To get there you can either walk around the hill, or, if you're not claustrophobic go through the five miles of tunnels the archaeologist have restored inside of the pyramid and they will lead you directly to the exterior pyramid.
Once you're out the tunnel and in the archeological site, you can admire a 155 foot mural called "The Drunkards", featuring life-sized figures drinking. Go to the center of the main square in the complex and clap your hands and you will hear the sound of a bird call Quetzal (the one from the pyramid's name), the louder you clap the louder the bird will sing. This is an amazing example of the knowledge of space and sound this city had, centuries before the technologic era.
After you visit the Pyramid, go to the church on top of the pyramid for amazing views of the city, the archeological site and, of course, to visit the beautiful Church of Nuestra Señora de los Remedios.
