Lubaantun (Place of Fallen Stones)
The Maya temples of Lubaantun are unique in that they were built entirely without the aid of mortar. Each stone carefully was measured and cut to fit the adjoining one.
Situated above a tributary to the Columbia River, Lubaantun, sits near the Maya village of San Pedro Columbia in the Toledo District, 13 miles from Punta Gorda Town. Consisting of 14 major structures grouped around five main plazas, Lubaantun was built in the Late Classic period and is the largest ceremonial center in southern Belize.
