DIPA Plan Grande

DIPA Sites – Plan Grande

Unique among the five sites of the PDRVC, Plan Grande is situated on the island of Guanaja, one of the Bay Islands of Honduras. It is the only archaeological site in the Bay Islands that still has numerous stone stelas and other stone monuments, yet this site has never been fully excavated.

The archaeological site occupies the western edge of a flat plain on the north side of the island. To the east, the steep limestone cliff of Marble Hill rises 50 meters above the plain. These vertical limestone cliffs are filled with caves where ceremonies were carried out in prehistoric times. At Plan Grande, DIPA will be involved in developing the site’s first management plan .
