Photographer's Note

Izamal was an important maya religious site, dedicated to the maya god Itzamna. Dozen of temple-pyramids were built for him. During the XVIth century, spanish colonists destroyed the main pyramid to use the stones to build their huge monastery. The cloister garth is one of the biggest garth in the world.
