Etla Valley

( Technical Information)
( JPEG 2.0 mb.)


Looking northwest from the west side of the Main Plaza, the Etla Valley streches to the right behind the hill topped by the North Platform.

Note the remains of terraces on the side of the hill. Such remains are are present on most of the slopes of Monte Albán. Residential sturctures, minor public structures and probably small gardens were situated on them.

The plant with the white blooms in the left foreground is a palo bobo or cazahuate (lpomoea murucoides).
