Not the most impressive site in our tour of Mexico but a good way point as we journeyed from Oaxaca and Monte Alban to visit the Grijalva River and Sumidero Canyon. A bit different from some of the other sites so very interesting but as others have said could do with an investment and some TLC.
Mitla is much younger than majestic Monte Alban and feels intimate in comparison. Artful stonework and artfully worked stone mosaics adorn the ruins. A Spanish church built from Mitla material site right next to site, adds an interesting contrast but is quite dull inside. Mitla site sits in middle of village, plenty of restaurant choices and souvenir shops. Mitla is... 更多
This is an important set of Archaeological ruins outside of Oaxaca. What remains is not as impressive as Monte Alban and has almost no posted resources in order to inform visitors. You'll need to do some research or sign-on to a guided tour.

Not Monte Alban but worth visiting if you're in the area and don't mind a bit of a drive from Oaxaca City. You can still see the colors of the temple.
This city was built after the fall of Monte Alban, so it's very different. The town is built up among and on top of the ruins, which feature distinctive geometric design carvings.
Great settlement, one of the oldest and well preserved, short tour, Its located about 30 minutes from Oaxaca City. You can get there by car or like most of us on a tour. We took one it’s called “Guesh Luhaa” great prices and excellent tours. You should take a walked on the crypts but beware they are very narrow, so... 更多
