Excursion to Monte Albán and Cuilápam de Guerrero

The tour turned out to be much better than expected, despite the current situation. The guide and the driver were very friendly. We had more than enough time in Monte Alban to explore it on our own and take many photos, after the explanation offered by the guide. The alebrijes and black clay artisan workshops seemed sensational to us.

Excursion to Monte Albán and Cuilápam de Guerrero

We'll pick you up at 10 am from your hotel in Oaxaca and set off to the archaeological site of Monte Alban. One of the most important discoveries of the Zapotec civilisation.

We'll visit its residential structures, pyramids, temples and altars. Do you want to know what rites were practised there? Pay attention to the guide's explanations! Nearby, we'll visit the pre-Hispanic jewellery workshop to see the replicas of the aboriginal jewellery, which will fascinate you!

Our next stop will be the village of Arrazola to see its traditional Alebrijes, colourful wooden figures that are an important part of Mexican culture.

The route will continue to San Bartolo Coyotepec to visit a black clay workshop. These natural pieces are an icon of the town. There, you'll have an hour of free time for lunch.

Next, we'll arrive at Cuilápam de Guerrero where we'll find the former convent of Cuilápam, the main monument of the municipality. You'll visit this 16th century Spanish style building and learn about its uses and relevance.

Finally, at 6 pm, we'll take you back to your hotel in Oaxaca.

Hotel pick-up

Pick up will be from hotels in the historic centre of Oaxaca and in the Colonia Trinidad Huertas.
