Magnificent Monte Alban

Oaxaca City, Oaxaca and Chiapas, Mexico

Monte Alban was one of the most important archaeological areas of Mesoamerica, located 10 kilometres from the city of Oaxaca. Explore this ancient Zapotec city with your own private guide, one of the greatest monuments of the continent.

On a surface shaped as a hill by its builders, it forms a large square that serves as a compound, with the buildings arranged harmoniously around it: pyramids, temples, courtyards, palaces and a ball game. The slab with reliefs of human figures called “the dancers” is noteworthy. In the vicinity of the ball game, there are several graves with rich treasures, like the splendid gift of Tomb 7.
