The green-glazed pottery produced by this small village is incredibly beautiful and is in use daily all over México, and other parts of the world. Stop by the “La Casa del Artesano” on your way back from Monte Albán and see how these beautiful terracotta and green glazed items are made following ancient, ancestral techniques.

You could also visit some of the local artisan’s homes for private showings and shopping.

The village is located fairly close to Monte Albán, and is an easy stop on your way to, or back from Monte Albán.
