NohochnáLa Casa Grande (del maya yucateco: nohoch, grande y ná, casa) posee un eje longitudinal de 135 m., orientado en sentido norte-sur, con 31 m. de ancho y 9 m. de altura. Una amplísima escalinata con 15 enormes peldaños cubre casi todo el lado oriental. En la parte superior, hay cuatro largas habitaciones que se accedáa a través de anchas pilastras. Los espacios interiores sugieren un uso de carácter administrativo: audiencias, control y distribución de mercancías, contabilidad, etc. Asimismo, el tamaño de los escalones hace pensar que
pudieron haber funcionado como gradas en eventos celebrados en la plaza principal.Arquitectónicamente, este edificio es muy parecido a la Estructura 44 de Dzibilchaltún, Yucatán. Ambas construcciones son buenos
ejemplos de la arquitectura monumental Petén, que antecede a los demás estilos mayas, y que está presente en muchas localidades de la península yucateca, del norte de Guatemala, del sur de Campeche y del sur de Quintana Roo. Investigaciones recientes demuestran que su aparición y
desarrollo son bastante uniformes en el mundo maya.Maya-Yucateco:Le nojoch najo' (ich maayae': nojoch, grande yéetel naj, casa) u chowakile' 135 meetros, tia'an ti' xaman-nojol, yéetel 31 meetros u kóochil yéetel 9 meetros u ka'anlil. Jump'éel kóoch na'akalil yéetel 15 nojoch

Maya: nohoch, large and ná, house) is 135 m. long, lying in a north-south direction, and is 31 m. wide and nine m. high. A very wide stairway with 15 enormous steps covers almost the entire east side. There are four long rooms in the upper part, which are entered between wide pilasters. The inside spaces suggest use for administrative purposes: hearings, control and distribution of goods, accounting, etc. Likewise, the size of the steps makes
one think that they could have served as seats in events celebrated in the principal plaza.Architecturally, this building is very similar to Structure 44 at Dzibilchaltún, Yucatán. Both constructions are good examples of the Petén monumental architecture, which precedes
other Maya styles, and which is present in many locations throughout the Yucatán Peninsula, from northern Guatemala, southern Campeche and
Quintana Roo. Recent research shows that its appearance and development are quite uniform throughout the Maya world.
