  • The Mitla archeological site is a wonderful compliment to Mount Albion. This site can easily be explored in an hour or two and is about 30 minutes outside of Oaxaca. What is remarkable is not the size...  more »
  • All of the artifacts found here have been removed, and so what you see is just the archaeological remains. Some background reading might help in appreciating what there is to see. 
  • メキシコ国内の遺跡では小さいですが,幾何学模様が施された建物が美しいです。また南の中庭では,地下に潜ることもできます。ツアーで訪れましたが,それほど広くはないのでガイドと一緒に回って十分遺跡を堪能できると思います。
