Description

The city of Monte Albán stands out for its enormous importance as an economic, political and religious axis (it was the first urban complex in Mesoamerica); by its extension, almost as big as the current capital of Oaxaca; and for its long life, begun around 500 BC and concluded around 850 AD.

The city is surrounded by several mountains located strategically at the confluence of the arms that form the great Valley of Oaxaca. There are three groups that make up the site: Monte Albán, Atzompa and el Gallo, all formed by archaeological monuments on the peaks and by series of cultivation terraces on the slopes.

On this tour you will depart to Monte Albán, located just ten kilometres from the city of Oaxaca and built on a mountain, it is one of the most impressive archaeological sites in the Americas. More than three thousand years old and inhabited by more than one culture (Olmec, Zapotec and Mixteca), is known for the treasures of their graves. You will visit: The Big Square, the Big Ball Game, the Palace, the Observatory, and Plaza of the Dancers, among others.
