Herbie’s World Heritage

Today we visited the archeological site El Tajín – an ancient Hispanic city in Mexico.

It is located just besides Papantla de Olarte in the state of Veracruz.

We enjoyed walking around in that huge area with different kinds of pyramids.

Tajín was one of the most important cities in the Classic era of Mesoamerica.

The best-known monument in El Tajín is the Pyramid of Niches.

Nowadays Tajín is a World Heritage site inscribed by the UNESCO in 1992.

The city flourished from AD 600 to 1200. It was discovered in 1785.
