Distinctive

The building most characteristic of the ruins of Palenque is the great palace with its distinctive square tower with stone ceiling, an interior column and a spiral staircase. Experts agree that it was from here that Maya royalty and priests watched the sun set behind the Temple of Inscriptions, located diagonally opposite. This happened every December 22 or every winter solstice. There were many rooms inside the palace for the house of the ruler, his family and their relatives. It's a large building of 85 meters from north to south and 60 meters from east to west, so more than 5,000 square meters.

Palenque palace

Located on a stepped base, the Palace is a maze of courtyards, corridors and chambers, is distinguished by a tower of four bodies that possibly served as an observatory or watchtower. The building is the result of the work of many kings, including Pakal, but the basement hides previous construction stages, some preserved in the form of underground galleries. The Palace was the seat of the royal family. In some parts of the building are sculptures and stucco decorations. Of special interest are those representing the captives in the courtyard, huge, where outsiders were impressed by the power of the kings of Palenque. Oval Table shows the ascent of Pakal, who receives the emblems of office from his mother, whose reign was short-lived. One of my favorite buildings in the world, I could spend an hour in a minute ... I thought

El palacio de palenque

Emplazado sobre un basamento escalonado, el Palacio es un laberinto de patios, corredores y cámaras; se distingue por una torre de cuatro cuerpos que posiblemente sirvió como observatorio o atalaya.
El edificio es el resultado de la labor de muchos reyes, incluyendo Pakal, pero el basamento esconde etapas constructivas anteriores, algunas conservadas en forma de galerías subterraneas. El Palacio fue sede de la familia real. En algunas partes del edificio se ven esculturas y decoraciones de estuco. De especial interés son las que representan a los cautivos en el patio, enormes, donde los forasteros quedaban impresionados por el poder de los reyes de Palenque. La tabla Oval muestra la ascensión de Pakal, que recibe los emblemas del cargo de manos de su madre, cuyo reinado fue efímero.
Uno de mis edificios favoritos del mundo, pude pasarme dentro una hora que me pareció un minuto...

Découverte

Le palais de Palenque est unique en son genre. En effet, la tour-observatoire carrée de trois étages qui le surmonte est le seul édifice de ce genre connu en zone maya. Le palais comporte, sur son pourtour, des galeries ouvertes sur l'extérieur dont une grande partie subsiste encore aujourd'hui. Il était le lieu du gouvernement de l'époque maya sa construction surélevée, il est constitué d'un assemblage de salles, de corridors et de cours intérieures, style patio. Très bien conservé, on peut tout à fait s'imaginer la vie de l'époque.

Diagonally opposite the small temple ...

Diagonally opposite the small temple of inscriptions, the palace is one of the cornerstones of the Maya site of Palenque. Maze of buildings and corridors, the palace is extremely broad and includes four courtyards connected with each other, topped by a large and majestic tower twenty feet high. It allows, by its extent, feel for a time away from the crowds and visit this architectural marvel at their own pace. A true haven of peace, lost in the midst of lush vegetation.

Opposé par la diagonale au petit temple de inscriptions, le Palais est l'une des pièces maîtresses du site maya de Palenque. Véritable dédale de bâtiments et de couloirs, le palais est extrêmement vaste et comprend quatre cours intérieures reliées les unes aux autres, surmontée par une grande et majestueuse tour d'une vingtaine de mètres de haut. Il permet, de par son étendue, de se sentir pour un temps loin des hordes de touristes, et de visiter cette merveille architecturale à son rythme. Un vrai havre de paix, perdu au milieu d'une végétation luxuriante.
