BONAMPAK is not fully excavated, much still covered by rainforest. One of the most amazing finds at Bonampak is the three rooms of murals depicting important ceremonial and political events. Here we find some of the best preserved examples of the painted art of the Maya Experience these finely-painted murals depicting the gruesome torturing and bloodletting rituals performed by the Maya.
The murals of Bonampak are vibrant with the colors used by the Maya in their art. There are three rooms which graphically show scenes of celebration, battle, and sacrifice. The scenes of pomp, warfare and intimacy helped Mayanists shape an image of the true life the Maya elite led. Now it is possible to drive to the site on our way to Palenque after visiting Piedras Negras or Yaxchilan
