The Mayan word “sacbe ” ethimologically comes from sac-white and be-path: “white path”. The surface of these Mayan elevated paths were covered with white stucco, and they were between 4 and 20 meters wide and about 300 kilometers long.
The sacbeob (plural of sacbe) connected temples and squares of Mayan Cities. The most known sacbeob are located in Yucatan, Mexico, like the sacbe of Chichen-Itza Archeological Site that connects the main group of the Castle with the sacred cenote (natural well), or sacred well. Many of these white paths were built in the days of Pre-Classic Maya.
