“The Kulubá archaeological zone, discovered in 1941 and located in the municipality of Tizimín, will trigger cultural tourism in the eastern part of the state of Yucatan,” according to the Secretariat of Tourism Promotion SEFOTUR.
Tizimin is not only popular for its religious traditions and the beauty of its colonial streets, it is also surrounded with pre-Hispanic Mayan archaeological sites, and just a few miles away from the beautiful beaches of San Felipe and Río Lagartos.
A good example of these majestic ancient Maya cities, that are not very well known, is Kulubá; which features a longitudinal building with a semicircular dome that is rare in Maya architecture.
Besides, at Kulubá Archaeological Site, temples of up to 80 meters high can be seen. Mexican archaeologists are still researching the area and restoration works are being carried out. Buildings have been discovered around Kulubá, which cover an area of 6 kilometers.
Saul Ancona Salazar, secretary of Tourism Promotion, highlighted that the restoration of the ruins of Kulubá would definitely attract more tourism to the state.
Yucatecan archaeologist Alfredo Barrera Rubio who has investigated more about these archaeological vestiges of the Mayan city of Kulubá, documented the structures and began with the restoration project during his tenure as director of the local INAH Center.
Besides, on 2017, Governor Rolando Zapata Bello announced a significant investment for the “rescue” of Kulubá and other Maya archaeological sites.
