Chicanna: Structure I, Group A

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

"This plaza group displays the characteristic features of the regional architectural tradition. Structure I, on the west side of the plaza, is a badly ruined but typical example of the twin-tower Rio Bec style."

(Eaton 1974: 133)

This building is believed to date from the Bejuco ceramic phase of the Late Classic period, probably between A.D. 650 and 750, and is thought to be a slightly earlier construction than Structure II across the plaza.
