„Stairway To The Tulum Beach“

from the gallery of John Bailey

Tulum was one of the last cities inhabited and built by the Mayas; it was at its height between the 13th and 15th centuries and managed to survive about 70 years after the Spanish began occupying Mexico. Old World diseases brought by the Spanish settlers appear to have been the cause of its demise. One of the best-preserved coastal Maya sites, Tulum is today a popular site for tourists. This, the largest structure at Tulum, is called "El Castillo", which means "the castle".
