Photographer's Note

Structure CA7, oriented north - south, faces the Southeast Plaza in a westerly direction. Nowadays, the front portion is largely in ruins, as, until authorities realized the treasure they possessed at Oxkintok, there was little security, and numerous pieces were looted. CA7 is also referred to as the Ch'ich Palace, with 10 rooms and a portico/facade. The rooms are organized in 5 galleries; 3 lengthwise and 2 sideways. The portico possesses 3 anthropomorphic columns and a pilaster. There are two rear galleries each with 3 rooms and a further 2 rooms on each side. The palace dates from the Classic - Puuc architectural period of 750 - 1050 CE.
