Tour the Archeological Ruins of Mitla and Yagul
Thursday, February 7, 2019 - 9 to 4

Mitla and Yagul are the most important archaeological sites near Oaxaca, after Monte Alban. Mitla, which became the religious center of the Zapotec empire after the decline of Monte Alban, is notable for its many nearly-intact buildings, many of which exhibit striking architectural details, like the exquisite stone fretwork that adorns both exterior and interior walls.
The palace complex at Yagul is impressive for its size and the presence of tombs and a large ball court. The fortress hill behind the palace offers a great view of the Tlacolula valley.
The group will stop for lunch at the Sabor de Antequera restaurant, which provides a stunning all-you-can-eat buffet. (Note: tour price does not include lunch, which will cost approximately 200 pesos for food and beverage.)

Payment either at the OLL front desk or on the OLL Event page https://www.oaxlibrary.org/online-store. Early registration advised. Members: 350 pesos Non-members: 400 pesos
