Iximché located in Tecpán, Chimaltenango, where the Mayans founded their last capital specifically of the cakchiqueles.

The name Iximché is composed of two parts, Ixim, which means corn, and Chée, tree, “Corn Tree”. The architectural vestiges that we see in the present are remains of palaces, squares and Mayan ball games that in their time were decorated in a colorful way and were galas of the kingdom.

Much of the structures were destroyed during the conquest and the rock buildings dismantled to use their stones in Spanish constructions of Tecpán. Additionally it has a museum of valuable attraction.
