Pueblo Viejo Mountain and the Town of San Pedro Yucunama

The Pueblo Viejo mountain retains the traces of one of the most important Mixtec chiefdoms of the Postclassical period. There is a ball court, Gran Plaza, and series of residential complexes spread across the sides and peak of the mountain.

Take this chance to visit the town’s downtown–we suggest popping into the small museum with archeological finds said to be from the Olmec people. The jewel of its collection is the ancient codex known as the Códice de Yucunama.
