What appears to be a miniature version of "El Castillo" is actually a type of grave stone, as the seven pyramid levels signify seven burials. Inside the pyramid is a shaft that leads to an underground cavern full of skeletons.


The Ossuary has the traditional pyramid-like theme prevalent in Chichen Itza.

Consider staying in Chichen Itza if you plan on visiting Ossuary, since travelers to this region of Cancun and the Mexican Caribbean will have easy access to this historic attraction during their time there.
