Cópan UNESCO Heritage Site


Post #3 of UNESCO Heritage Sites Week

Situated in western HONDURAS near the Guatemala border, the Maya site of Cópan (or also known as Copan without the accent) features ancient plazas, terraces, and temples complementing the Mayan Indians' storied history. Inhabited beginning in 2,000 B.C. and inexplicably abandoned in about A.D. 900, Cópan was established as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the year 1980. More information can be found on UNESCO's website.
