Monte Alban is an archaeological site located 10 km from the city of Oaxaca. It was named by the Zapotecs as “Dani Baá” or Sacred Mountain and, later, “Yucucui” or Cerro Verde, by the Mixtec indigenous people who inhabited it around the 12th century. As it happened with several pre-Hispanic metropolises, Monte Albán was inhabited by more than one culture. The origin of the first inhabitants is a matter of debate, since archaeologists have not been able to specify it. Later, the city was inhabited by the Zapotecs and, finally, by the Mixtecs. In addition, studying the architecture, the specialists found that Monte Albán had contact with other cultures, mainly with the inhabitants of the powerful Teotihuacán. On this archaeological tour you will get to know the most important Archaeological Zone in the state of Oaxaca, Monte Albán, the majestic urban center of unique regional importance due to the religious, political and economic control exercised by the Zapotec people.
