Question: Describe "Copán"?

Answer 1/2
An ancient ruined city of western Honduras, near the Guatemalan frontier, and on the right bank of the Río Copán, a tributary of the Motagua. Its elaborately sculptured stone buildings rank among the most celebrated monuments of Mayan civilization. The city is sometimes regarded as identical with the Indian stronghold which, after a heroic resistance, was stormed by the Spaniards, under Hernando de Chaves, in 1530. It has given its name to the department in which it is situated.
