View of the House of the Halach Uinic in Tulum, Mexico with thatched roof. “This is one of the buildings where the most important inhabitants of Tulum lived. It consists of several large rooms that were covered with flat roofs supported by columns, which supported crossed wooden beams and a mixture of gravel, limestone powder and sand, known as “calcrete.” It has benches along the walls, which were used as seats and probably beds. In the back is a sanctuary where the family performed their religious ceremonies,”—Site placard.
