Monte Alban gets bigger

Send by email

Soon to be open to the public near Oaxaca City is what might be called a suburb of Monte Alban, nearly as large and every bit as impressive, with two ball courts, two palaces and three tombs – one has mural-covered walls -- have been uncovered during the past five years. Excavation took place quietly with five million pesos spent annually on the project. Atzomba was founded about 650 A.D. by the Zapotecs, who still live there.
