Oaxaca ©
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 Templo de Santo Domingo de Guzman and Basilica de la Soledad. Get a sense of the local culture at Museo de las Culturas de Oaxaca and Mercado Benito Juárez. Explore Oaxaca's surroundings by going to Yagul (in Tlacolula), Paraiso de Adan (in San Agustin Etla) and Capulalpam de Mendez (in Ixtlan). The adventure continues: explore the ancient world of Monte Alban, hike along Pueblos Mancomunados, take in the exciting artwork at Nuun, and browse the exhibits of Voces de Copal.
