Pyramid of the Magician at Uxmal

5 reviews of Pyramid of the Magician at Uxmal

Magical Pyramid

Steep, with an oval base, the home of Adivino for me, this is the most striking monument in Uxmal. According to legend it was erected in one night by a dwarf, but the truth is that you can appreciate various stages of construction where a a temple covered the construction from above. It is assumed that the pyramid was painted red with touches of blue, yellow and black. The corrosion of the paint and mortar has brought out the limestone from underneath. It is 35m high and it is forbidden to climb to the top to prevent erosion. It seems like a perfect idea and should be applied to all such monuments.
