Even though much smaller,the site's architecture is similar in many ways to that of Monte Alban. It's Palace of Six Patios is similar to the Group of the Columns at Mitla. This enormous labyrinth-like structure was inhabited by the ruler, or rulers, of Yagul. This has been totally excavated, and surrounding the six patios are rooms with one or three entrances. The walls are made of stone and clay covered with stucco; the floors are made of red stucco. Some rooms were most certainly closed when the building was occupied. There is a throne in the northwestern patio of the southern room.

On a long, narrow street to the south of the Palace of the Six Patios one finds stone mosaics identical to those at Mitla. The stone floor was quarried from the mountain. This streets ends in a long, narrow room known as the Sala de Consejo (Council Chamber) which was previously decorated with stone mosaics that have since disappeared. One enters the room via a staircase which leads to a large patio. To the west, there is a ceremonial building, and to the the east, the ballcourt.

There s a large ballcourt lovated between the Palace of the Six Patios and Patio 4. It is aligned on an east west orientation and it is thought the ball game had great religious significance. This ball court is the second largest ballcourt in all of Mesoamerica, second only to Chichen Itza.

Yagul is known locally as Pueblo Viejo (Old Village).

This page will devote it's attention to the structures described above.

Many structures are unmarked, so we do not know what their purpose was.
