Yagul



Address:

Cholula, Mexico

Description:

Yagul has been occupied since 500 AD -some of the burials excavated on the site date from that era- but it was during 1250-1521 AD when this site lived its golden era, influenced by Monte Alban. There are about 30 tombs, some bearing hieroglyphic inscriptions, thus making them even more unique. The word Yagul means old tree in Zapotec and it can be easily guessed why, since it's set around a hill.
