Labna

labna

A short day visit from our Uxmal Hotels, LABNA was originally discovered and partially rebuilt in the 19th century, Labna has been somewhat neglected since then.

Located only about six miles from Sayil, on the Puuc Route, Labna’s structures are similar in style and scope, suggesting a close relationship between the two cities.

The central palace area is entered into through a well-restored, Puuc-style archway that is considered one of the finer examples of this type of architecture.

It is likely that this city too fell before the onslaught of the mighty Itza.

Until more work is done here, however, the story of Labna remains largely hidden among the collapsed buildings and the encroaching underbrush.

The largest structure in Labna is a pyramid, which is topped by partially-collapsed temple that was most probably added at a later date.
