History of Tikal
The ancient city of Tikal is located in the north of Guatemala, the center of the department of Petén. It is known as the “Place of the Voices.” Time has immortalized this place as a religious and cultural center, transmitting the messages of the ancient Mayans through the hieroglyphs carved in limestone, the unique architecture and the remains of colorful ceramics.
In 1955 Tikal was declared a National Park and later acquired the rank of National Monument for its extraordinary cultural wealth and the immense variety of species of flora and fauna.
Following these parameters, UNESCO named Tikal a Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 1979. Later it was assigned the category of the nuclear zone within the Maya Biosphere Reserve, a vast region of northern Guatemala confined to the protection of nature and other archaeological centers of the Mayan civilization.
