About Equinoccio de Primavera

During the spring equinox at Chichen Itza, the plumed serpent descends the steps of the great pyramid of KuKulcan. This unique show in the world is carried out by the solar projection of seven triangles of light, where when the sun's rays hit the rafters of the main staircase of the pyramid, an effect of light and shadow is produced, which lasts approximately 45 min, as the sun's rays advance, a serpent descending from the pyramid is observed.
