GET TO KNOW MONTE ALBAN AND ALL AROUND

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 tours to Oaxaca Mexico.

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.

The city was abandoned by the elite and much of its population during the downfall. However, the ceremonial enclosure that is the center of the archeological site of Monte Alban, was reused by the Mixtec during the Postclassic period. Explore the many mysteries to be found here with our Monte Alban day trips you will not regret it.

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. Although it is likely that its existence was known during the colonial period, Monte Alban is mentioned in the chronicles of some Conquistadores.
