Archaeologists with Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History have confirmed the discovery of a surprisingly well-preserved ancient Mayan city near Mérida, Yucatán. The city of Xiol is thought to have been built 1,000 years ago, and so far 12 structures have been uncovered, including palaces and houses.
Xiol was discovered during construction of an industrial park, which will still be built, though the archeological remains will now be preserved. And according to Mexico News Daily, the site could open to public tours by the end of 2022. Mexico’s Yucatán province is also home to other archaeological attractions such as Chichen Itza.CLICK HERE FOR FULL STORY
