Discovered in 1570 by Diego García de Palacio, the Maya site of Copan is one of the most important sites of the Mayan civilization. The site is functioned as the political, civil and religious centre of the Copan Valley. It was also the political centre and cultural focus of a larger territory that covered the southeast portion of the Maya area and its periphery. The citadel now in ruins and imposing public squares reveal the three main stages of development before the city was abandoned in the early 10th century.
For many years the Copán site has been famous for its magnificent Maya Ruins Archaeological declared an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1980. This magnificent park known as the most artistic Mayan civilization is perhaps the greatest source of information about this ancient civilization.
