Mexico Things to Do: 626 reviews and 826 photos


Monte Alban is a unique archeological site near Oaxaca city. It is build out of a different type of rock. Notice the colors, the yellow rock is clearly different than the grey rock found in most of the other ruins in Mexico. In many ways, Oaxaca is more like the Inca ruins found in Peru. Perhaps this is due to the fact that the town was build on top of a hill.

Address: Monte Alban
