Ek Balam features four beautiful buildings with intricate Mayan carvings and sculptures, many of which are still very visible
One of the largest restored buildings in Ek Balam is La Torre. The base of La Torre is extremely large measuring over 500 feet long and approximately half as wide and nearly 100 feet tall.
