Pics of the Lovely Monte Albán (Oaxaca, Mexico)

Posted on February 5, 2014


On a recent trip to Mexico, I had the good fortune of visiting Monte Albán, a large pre-Columbian archaeological site near Oaxaca central. Monte Albán was founded in the 5th century BC, and was a pre-eminent Zapotec socio-political and economic center for close to a thousand years. Here are a few pictures that I took, although they hardly do the site justice.

Monte Albán was ascribed to UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 1987.
