(12 shots) | Mitla is an other archeological site in the state of Oaxaca. It’s in a valley; made by Zapotecs and developed further by Mixtecs. It had its largest size between 750 and 1521. Where Monte Albán was almost without details; Mitla’s main attraction are it’s details. “The geometric patterns called grecas in Spanish seen on some of the stone walls and door frames are made from thousands of cut, polished stones that are fitted together without mortar. The pieces were set against a stucco background painted red. The stones are held in place by the weight of the stones that surround them.” (Wiki) I liked the harmony of these reliefs.
And finally our Christian explorers arrived in the 16th century; and could not think of anything better than building the Church of San Pablo on top.
