Maps of the Archaeological Site of Monte Albán

Situated on an artificially flattened hilltop the site is just 6km west of the city of Oaxaca. Composed of a flat open Grande Plaza ringed by a number of buildings it is dominated by two major platforms known as the Northern Platform, the larger, and the Southern Platform.

Many smaller buildings are grouped around, while to the north are various tombs, of which particularly tomb 7 is well known. The Danzantes is to the south west side of the Grande Plaza. Access to the site is via the Site Museum which is housed next to the admission gates on the north easterly side.
