The largest pyramid, El Castillo, rises to a height of 130 feet above the main plaza and a total of 250 feet above the river valley below. The main temple is visible from all parts of the valley.

"This ceremonial centre is an outlying member of, and on the eastern fringe of, a dense concentration of Maya sites in the eastern part of the Peten district of Guatemala which includes such well-known major sites as Tikal, Uaxactun and Naranjo. After examining the Maya remains in the whole of the Belize river valley, G.R.Willey and others suggested that Xunantunich may in fact have been a fairly important provincial centre, perhaps a regional capital. Whether this capital of the "Belize valley community" itself owed allegiance to the much larger sites further west is a matter for conjecture. Certainly the fine astronomical carved frieze on the main palace building at Xunantunich should indicate that the priests there were in the main stream of Maya intellectual culture."
