Several cultures have inhabited Oaxaca over time. The Zapotec and Mixtec are the ones that expanded the most. They built cities with pyramids, religious and trade centers. With the Spanish conquest and other previous events, these sites were destroyed. But the incredible fortresses remained throughout time and you can see them today.

Some of these are:


These 2 archaeological zones were one city that had 35,000 people living in it. And to this day, Atzompa is home to many Oaxacan families. In Atzompa, the families who dedicate their lives to shaping dreams in copal wood, making figures called alebrijes, stand out.

And Monte Alban stands out for having been inhabited by two cultures, the Zapotec who built it, and the Mixtec who inhabited it when they began to conquer the Central Valleys.
