Our world is filled with ancient cities that have experienced mysterious falls and have been whipped out from the face of the earth. Their remains can be found today but their downfall has remained a mystery.
This city/state is one of the largest and most preserved examples of the entire Maya civilization. There are still living descendants of the Mayans but no real answer why these cities were abandoned in the 14 century. Palenque is one of the most important cultural and historical locations in this region. It has a very significant collection of detailed sculptures and inscriptions. They contain important informations about ancient kings, battles and everyday life.
There are many theories about why the Mayans abandoned Palenque and some of them include wars, deadly diseases and climate changes.
