The caracol, or "Winding Staircase," stands on two rectangular stone-faced terraces reached by steps.
To the south of the caracol stands a ruin of remarkable beauty and in wonderful preservation.
After some little stay, the purser took his leave, and lay all night on board the caracol.
The only circular turning arch we saw was the continuously rounded one in the caracol at Chichen.
Mr. Cookson, accompanied only by a janissary in uniform, drove immediately towards the caracol.
