Photographer's Note

The structure labelled as Q146 marks the southern limit of intact and renovated buildings in the core of Mayapán. Its walls (those of the city), however, extend further south for an additional 140 metres, filled with the remains (mostly rubble) of another 30 or 40 buildings. An illustration of the condition of these ruins is shown in this photograph's background. The colourful and bent Buscera Simaruba tree indicates the border, running west to east, of structure Q145 - another one of the innumerable platforms and pillars. It effectively delimits the southern boundary of what I have labelled the southern plaza.
