The Labna Ruins of the Yucatan Peninsula along Ruta Puuc

What to see at Labna Ruins

The ruins of Labna will find a place on your Ruta Puuc itinerary, since they are unavoidable placed with their neighbors: Sayil and Kabah. The ruins date back to 600 AD to 900 AD and have strikingly unique features. The elaborately decorated Gateway Arch of Labna is famous for its interesting shape; different from a standard arc, the tall entrance is pinched at the top. 

El Palacio is another feature of the ruins and is known for being one of the longest structures on the Ruta Puuc. There is a replica of the gateway that was built in New Delhi, India, as a gesture of goodwill to the people of Mexico.

A shared commonality between all of the ruins in Ruta Puuc is the depiction of the rain god Chaac at each of them. Masks depicting the god adorn the temple at the Labna ruins.

Getting to Labna Ruins

The Labna Ruins can be visited as part of five major ruins on Ruta Puuc near the city of Merida, 60 miles away. Be sure to check with your hotel concierge or on a site like TripAdvisor for a complete package tour that includes the entire Ruta Puuc.
