One of the most impressive aspects of our tour of Xunantunich was the casual way our Mayan- Mestizo guide pointed at rock structures and said it was made for one kind of blood letting or another. Ironically, what you find at the top of the biggest pyramid is not an alter, but the royal bedrooms.
Actually, come to think of it, we didn’t see any alters in place anywhere. Here is where they do the circumcisions. I’m not sure if they did virgin sacrifices here too, or if it was in a building we didn’t see.
Here are the residences of the nobility.
This is a bedroom where several of them would all sleep. Comfy, no?
