El Tajin photos copyrighted by: VICTOR OVIES
Located in the state of Veracruz, El Tajin was at its height from the early 9th to the early 13th century. It became the most important centre in north-east Mesoamerica after the fall of the Teotihuacan Empire. Its cultural influence extended all along the Gulf and penetrated into the Maya region and the high plateaux of central Mexico.
Its architecture, which is unique in Mesoamerica, is characterized by elaborate carved reliefs on the columns and frieze.
