IRONMAN 70.3 Campeche 2019
Race through a World Heritage site among Mayan history and landmarks.
Campeche is one of Mexico’s best-kept secrets, with its colonial atmosphere, narrow streets, and pastel houses. The city is surrounded by walls that were built during the late 1600s to early 1700s in order to protect the city from Caribbean pirate attacks. The construction of the city walls took approximately 18 years to complete and much of the 8-meter high walls still exist today. Campeche was also named to the World Heritage List in 1999 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), which recognizes locations that preserve cultural and natural heritage around the world and are of outstanding value to humanity.
