Experience Highlights

  • Duration: Half day

Oaxaca, a World Heritage Site, was once the centre of the Mixtec and Zapotec civilizations. After the Spanish conquered Oaxaca in 1533, the city quickly took on a Spanish flavour, with ornate buildings and charming plazas. Despite its colonial heritage, the city remains Indian at heart, due to the presence of a large indigenous population.

We will walk through the streets of the colonial city centre, along the Cathedral with its attractive baroque facade, the Iglesia de Santo Domingo, a church with a breathtaking interior that dazzles with gold ornaments, and the Casa Juarez where Mexico’s great liberal reformer and president Benito Juarez lived. We will have time to browse the colourful local markets, and soak up the bustling atmosphere on the Zocalo (main square).
