Iximche is located in the Municipality of Tecpán, Chimaltenango, Guatemala.
The city of Iximché was the most important prehispanic regional capital in Guatemala. Its name means “Corn Tree” in Cakchiquel and it is located in the Township of Tecpán, department of Chimaltenango. This place was the settlement of the cakchiquel Mayans since 1470 until 1524, when the Spaniards conquered what is now Guatemalan territory (Palacios, 2018).
The curated information of the ancient Mayan city Iximche was carried out by a team of experts in charge of content research Sandy Rivas, Laura Palacios and content editing and validation by archaeologist Ingui Zeceña. Likewise, there is a communication team Gilda Barrientos in charge of transferring the investigated data into audio guides in Spanish and English.
