It's in the main Copan ruins, a guide will help you understand its context or study online. Just visiting the ruins is nice, but knowing a little more about it before you go helps.

The hieroglyphic staircase is a treasure. Well worth the viist to Copan alone. They are shielded from the sun and other elements, fortunately so that they can be enjoyed for many generations in the future.

Not being a Mayan history buff, this was a 2 minute "look see". I believe there are only about 12 original stairs and the rest are man made.

Part of the runs which is well protected and the stories behind the staircase are very interesting - you need a guide to truely explain things to you here.

What a sight to see, how they told a story on these stairs. What a job it is going to be to try to re do them in the correct order, amazing to see how all these ruins are recreated and to think what it took to build them so long ago
