Labna Arch

The smallest site on the Puuc route is Labna. We were alone there although we visited in the height of the season. Restaursation is going on but as you can see there still is a lot to do. The corbelled arch is famous for its carvings of stylized Maya huts above the doorways, a sign that there was less distance between regents and people as in older cities like Tikal or Palenque
