La pirámide de la mago

The Nunnery Quadrangle (a nickname given by the Spanish) is the finest of Uxmal's several quadrangles. It has elaborately carved façades on both the inside and outside faces.
|The upper level is richly decorated with symbolic motifs with the individual blocks making up a form of mosaic|

|The Pyramid of the Magician is a unusual among Maya structures in that its outlines are elliptical in shape|
|Here a newer pyramid was built centered slightly to the east of the older pyramid, so that on the west side the temple atop the old pyramid is preserved, with the newer temple above it.|
