About Yagul, Oaxaca De Juarez

Yagul is an archaeological site and former city-state associated with the Zapotec civilization of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica, located in the Mexican state of Oaxaca. The site was declared one of the country's four Natural Monuments on 13 October 1998. The site is also known locally as Pueblo Viejo (Old Village) and was occupied at the time of the Spanish Conquest. After the Conquest the population was relocated to the nearby modern town of Tlacolula where their descendants still live. Yagul was first occupied around 500-100 BC. Around 500-700 AD, residential, civic and ceremonial structures were built at the site. However, most of the visible remains date to 1250-1521 AD, when the site functioned as the capital of a Postclassic city-state. The site was excavated in the 1950s and 60s by archaeologists Ignacio Bernal and John Paddock. Vestiges of human habitation in the area, namely cliff paintings at Caballito Blanco, date to at least 3000 BC. After the abandonment of Monte Albán about 800 AD, the region's inhabitants established themselves in various small centers such as Lambityeco, Mitla and Yagul.

Yagul, Oaxaca De Juarez Reviews - Write a Review

  • Lovely landscapes and interesting prehispanic palace

  • I love ruins typically, and this was no exception. Interesting history how this was a late empire compared to nearby ruins around Oaxaca, and beautiful scenic views from up on the mountain. If you like history, this is worth the trip out of town.

  • The scenery and history of Yagul amazed me. Que paisaje tan bonito!

  • Hermoso lugar con unas increibles vistas y senderos para perderse todo el dia Imperdible conocerlo

  • Yagul es de las zonas arqueológicas más importantes de Oaxaca, no sólo encontramos construcciones prehispánicas, también se puede disfrutar de las Cuevas Prehistóricas de la zona con pinturas Rupestres como en el Complejo Caballito Blanco , consideradas Patrimonio Cultural de la Humanidad junto con las de Mitla. Además Yagul es uno de los pocos Monumentos Naturales del País. Yagul es un lugar imperdible en Oaxaca, un buen mirador del Valle tlacolulense donde se puede admirar el Cerro Picacho, además tiene el juego de pelota más grande de la zona y seguido se realiza en el lugar la Feria de la AgroBiodiversidad.
