Photographer's Note

This is all that remains of Ball Court #2, built in 517 CE. Sunken it was not, and oriented in a more or less east-west direction. It was open at both ends. Located near the base of the terraces in the Grand Plaza it would have afforded additional seating on the steps of the Acropolis. The stones were most likely removed for other purposes by locals. The area of the plaza is fenced and there are mounds that can be seen where cattle now graze. The grass was very wet and my feet were soaked from walking over here. My guide warned me not to go here after I had gone here. We are often wiser after the fact. This view is to the south.
