Chichen Itza #4

People standing below the wall give an indication of its true height.

Players had to hit the ball through this stone hoop.

The ancient ball court.

We were amazed to see the enormity of the ancient ball court, especially when we saw how high above the ground they placed the hoops. And to think they had to get the ball through the hoop without using their hands or feet. Incredible!
