The site is bounded on three sides by ravine walls and separated from the main residential area by an artificial creek. The site center consists of four large and two small plazas, each of which contained at least two temples. Along with elite palaces there are two well kept ancient maya ball courts!
Iximché was largely preserved by the Spanish due to their alliance with the Kaqchikel against the K'iché. The "Place of the Maize trees" was abandoned by the Spaniards in 1527 due to attacks from the K'iché. The site has a museum with several nice pieces found there, including sculptures and ceramics.
