Located in the center of Palenque Archaeological Zone is the Palace that consists of four courtyards and a watchtower.



Beneath Palenque's Palace is the Otulum Aqueduct that channels water from the Otulum stream. There are ancient latrines, and steam baths once used for physical and ritual cleansing. Palenque represents the western regional variant of Classic Maya civilization. Although the earliest occupation of the site dates to about 100 BC, it becomes a major population center only at about 600 AD and all construction ended circa 800 AD.
