Monte Albán

México is known for it’s many ruins such as Teotihuacan near the capital or Chichen Itza located in the state of Yucatán. Today I visited the lesser known ruins of the city of Monte Albán just thirty minutes southwest of Oaxaca city. The site is situated atop artificially-leveled ridge. Not only are the archeological finds of the Zapotec culture admirable but also the views of the surrounding valleys and towns.
