Oaxaca is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and contains ruins and monuments from before the Spanish arrived to the contemporary city of today. Near the city is Monte Alban, one of the most impressive pre-Columbian sites in Mexico. It was built by the Zapotec people and, unlike Chichen Itza, you can climb on the pyramids.
