Architecture In Belize

Architecture in Belize is heavily influenced by the native Mayan culture and by the colonial architecture of the 18th Century. Mayan structures were typically constructed from stone and wood, and often included religious sites, temples, and pyramids. The colonial buildings incorporated heavy masonry along with wooden and zinc elements, both of which are still commonly used today in many buildings throughout the country. The designs of buildings are often a combination of traditional and modern, with many buildings featuring both modern and traditional elements.
