Monte Alban – Oaxaca Mexico – Photo

The Zapotec city of Monte Alban covers more than one of the hills surrounding the city of Oaxaca, Mexico although only about 10% of the city is estimated to have been uncovered so far. Built around 500 B.C. it was the predominant Zapotec city for around 1000 years. Its location at the top of a hill gave the Zapotec the name the cloud people.
