Overview

Monte Alban, whose name means ‘White Mountain,’ is located on a vast mountaintop expanse with spectacular 360-degree views of the city and surrounding Oaxaca Valley. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, along with Oaxaca City, the pre-Columbian archeological site is considered the most magnificent of the region’s ancient ruins.
Upon pickup from your hotel at 10am, travel by comfortable coach to the site, located approximately 20 minutes away. You’ll explore the immense and well-preserved complex on foot as you tour the grounds with your knowledgeable guide. Visit pyramids, temples and altars, as well as several residential structures – all constructed around the rectangular Grand Plaza, a large open area on the flattened plateau.
See the I-shaped ball court constructed in 100 BC, and climb to the South Platform (Plataforma Sur), a large area known for its wide staircase and great panoramic views. Learn interesting facts from your guide about Zapotec history and culture as you gaze at ceremonial platforms, including a series of significant rock carvings called The Dancers (Los Danzantes). You’ll see some of Monte Alban’s 170 tombs, whose excavations revealed a range of paintings and stone carvings.
Spend some free time exploring on your own and capturing great photos before re-boarding your coach back to Oaxaca, where you’ll be dropped off at your hotel around 1pm.
