Chicanna, Group A Structure III

Chicanna: Group A, Structure III [February 18, 1997]

In 1974, Jack D. Eaton, the discoverer of Chicanná, described Group A as consisting of two standing and two collapsed structures. Structure III counted as one of the collapsed structures, but was consolidated and restored in the 1980's by Román Piña Chan and Ricardo Bueno Cano. It is believed to have been an elite residence built in the Terminal Classic period, making it a somewhat later construction than Str. I & II.
