MONTE ALBAN IS ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITES IN MEXICO

Monte Alban is an archaeological site located 10 km from the city of Oaxaca, capital of the Mexican state of the same name. Monte Alban was long the seat of the dominant power in the region of the Central Valleys of Oaxaca, from the decline of San José Mogote in the Middle Preclassic Period. Come see its splendor with our Monte Alban ruins tour.

The downfall of the city occurred around the IX century. The ancient name of this city came by the Zapotecs at the end of the Late Preclassic. According to some sources, the original name was Dani BAA. It is known, however, that the Mixtec knew the city as Yucucuí (Mixtec for Green Hill). Our bilingual guides will tell you so much more.

Like most of the great Mesoamerican cities, Monte Alban was a city with a multiethnic population. Throughout its history, the city maintained strong links with other important towns in Mesoamerica, especially with the Teotihuacans during the Early Classic.

At this time, the Zapotec people's political power was divided between various cities, such as Zaachila Yagul Lambityeco and Tehuantepec for a great while.
