Pre-Hispanic City and National Park of Palenque

This site might be smaller than other sites of its kind, but still, looks amazing to me

Palenque, also anciently known as Lakamha (literally: "Big Water"), was a Maya city state in southern Mexico that flourished in the 7th century. The Palenque ruins date from ca. 226 BC to ca. AD 799.
Palenque is a medium-sized site, much smaller than such huge sites as TikalChichen Itza, or Copán, but it contains some of the finest architecture, sculpture, roof comb and bas-relief carvings that the Mayas produced. - in: wikipedia
