Overview

Aguateca is a Maya site located in northern Guatemala's Petexbatun Basin, in the department of Petn.
The first settlements at Aguateca date to the Late Preclassic period (300 BC - AD 350). Aguateca sits on top of a 90 meters (300 ft) tall limestone bluff, creating a highly defensible position. This steep escarpment overlooks Petexbatun Lagoon in the Southwestern Guatemalan lowlands and is accessible by boat.
There is an extensive system of defensive walls that surrounds the city, reaching over 3 miles (4.8 km) in length. Its center consisted on the Palace Group, which was probably a royal residential compound, and the Main Plaza.
