The ruins are divided into two groups. One group belongs to the classic Maya Period and was built between the 7th and 10th centuries A.D., at which time the city became a prominent ceremonial center. The other group corresponds to the Maya-Toltec Period, from the later part of the 10th century to the beginning of the 13th century.
The site exhibits a multitude of architectural styles, from what is called “Mexicanized” and reminiscent of styles seen in central Mexico to the Puuc style found among the Puuc Maya of the northern lowlands.
Our digital reconstruction concentrates on most of the buildings at the inner area, which is often called Chichén Nuevo.

TimeTours is not just a typical guidebook. Instead, this virtual trip through time aims to bring the past back to life using our modern 3D reconstructions. In Cooperation with TimeTours we developed an iPhone/iPad-app, which offers a wealth of images and animations about the Site Chichen Itza. It also includes comparing “Now&Then-time windows” of all major structures, 360°-Panoramas as well many information.
“TimeTours: Chichén Itzá” is the first part of at least 3 Apps also featuring Uxmal and Palenque.
