Labna is located 18 miles from Uxmal and, like its neighbor Kabah, is built
in the Classic Puuc style. Labna dates between 600-900 A.D.
Labna means "old house" in Mayan. The Palace at Labna has as very
distinguishing features human heads emerging from a serpent. Images of
serpents are ubiquitous throughout the Maya world and symbolize birth,
change, and crawling though time.
Throughout the site
are well-preserved remains of the sacbe - or white stone elevated "roadways"
that connected the major Mayan sites.
