Capital city of the eponymous state, Oaxaca relies heavily on its colonial charm, its core a maze of tree-shaded alleys flanked by photogenic mansions, government buildings, and old churches.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Monte Alban and Mercado Benito Juárez. Templo de Santo Domingo de Guzman and Museo de las Culturas de Oaxaca are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Oaxaca: Capulalpam de Mendez (in Ixtlan), Yagul (in Tlacolula) and Paraiso de Adan (in San Agustin Etla). And it doesn't end there: admire the landmark architecture of Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption, take in the exciting artwork at Voces de Copal, hike along Pueblos Mancomunados, and identify plant and animal life at Geoparque Mixteca Alta.
