A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Copan was one of the ancient most effusive cultural centers of the Mayan civilization. It is less monumental than it is an intricately crafted work of art and it is exceptionally acclaimed for its detailed carved stelae (monuments of stone that characterize the history of Copan).
