Xunantunich or "Maiden of the Rock" in Maya is situated on the Western Highway across the river from the village of San Jose Succotz. This major ceremonial centre can be reached by ferry daily and it is only 1.5 kilometres from some lovely rapids of the Mopan River. The site core occupies 300 square meters but the periphery covers an astonishing several square kilometres.

El Castillo rises 40 metres above plaza level, making it one of the tallest buildings in Belize. On this structure there are two temples. The lower temple is famous for its large stucco frieze. A mask with larger ears probably represents the sun god. Next to this mask, there is a moon sign with a border of signs representing Venus.
