||Set in the heart of the Puuc hills, the imposing remains of Uxmal-Thrice Built, in the Yucatec Mayan language-testify to that city's extraordinary past. This program travels to the Yucatan Peninsula to explore the ruins of this significant Mayan cultural center. Aerial photography captures the magnitude of the site, while a ground-level inspection homes in on details such as the long-nosed Chac masks and carved mosaic facades associated with Mayan architectural ornamentation of the period. The Pyramid of the Magician, Nunnery Quadrangle, Governor's Palace, and Grand Pyramid are featured.
