Wow. I only wish it had been easier to photograph (the large awning suspended over the whole staircase, although necessary, was photographically difficult). Hello, Photoshop?

This is a major site and being slowly reconstructed to try and understand what the glyphs say and what the statues are. Its short of a '5' because its not easy to see and less easy to understand.

Amazing staircase, but it probably doesn't deserve its own location on Trip Advisor. It's part of the Copan Ruins, go see them all!

It's an impressive cultural experience. We enjoyed having a guide to go over the history with us and give us more details than a brochure. They have tried to protect it buy covering it, which is good, hopefully it will preserve this important cultural site for many generations!

Tall, interesting and full of intricate beautiful sculptures. A must see in your tour of the ruins.
Our tour guide (who had been doing it for 30 years), gave a lot of great information about it as well.
