The shadow epiphany of the Feathered Serpent on the side of the Pyramid of Kukulkan at Chichen Itza. This 'trick of light and shadow' occurs only on the equinoxes, 21 March and 21 September, at around 5.30 p.m.
The Great Pyramid of Cholula at sunset - a gigantic structure built over thousands of years in honour of the cult of Quetzalcoatl - later 'surmounted' by a Catholic chapel.
View down on the apex of the Pyramid of the Sun, believed by the Aztecs to be the place of creation.
