It is hard to describe the impact of standing on one of thousands of stone steps that were carefully placed on site 2500 years ago. Close your eyes and you can almost hear the sounds of the people who lived, worked and played in this magnificent and sophisticated place.
We hired a guide, Mario, who took us around much of Monte Alban and carefully explained the customs, knowledge and beliefs of the three people's who lived here between 500 BC and 750 AD. We felt privileged to spend four hours learning and walking around this treasure.
