Mount Albán is an amazing ancient Mexican ruin found on the edge of Oaxaca. For just under $5 one can see a very cool part of global history. We started through the museum to read and get a better understanding of what life was like thousands of years ago. Amazed by the attention to detail and large amount of information given inside, we decided to get out there to see it all.
