One of the country’s most diverse states, Oaxaca, will surprise you with some of Mexico’s most fascinating cultural traditions, with colourful crafts and world-famous gastronomy.
One of Oaxaca’s main attractions is the capital city, which goes by the same name as the state. The colonial city, surrounded by the high mountains of the Southern Sierra Madre, features archaeological zones, architecturally interesting buildings, ancient churches, and baroque temples. But especially the historic centre of Oaxaca, which was declared world heritage by UNESCO, elicits attention.

Visit the archaeological zone of Monte Alban, located only a few kilometres outside the city of Oaxaca. Monte Alban, meaning “White Mountain,” is an ancient Zapotec capital constructed on a plateau at 1,940 meters above sea level. With pyramids, temples, tombs, ceremonial rock carvings, and a court for the pre-Hispanic ball game, we will find cultural traces from different civilizations, among many other mystical constructions. Its spectacular hilltop location guarantees breathtaking views of the valleys of Oaxaca. We then continue to Mitla, an old ceremonial centre of the Zapotecs. Mitla is known for its outstanding mosaics in its walls, representing different geometric designs, a unique style of decorating in Mesoamerica. Adjacent to the archaeological site, you can also see the 16th century Church of San Pablo, built by the Spanish with materials from the ruins. On the way back to Oaxaca, we will make a stop to admire the Tule tree, perhaps one of the most influential living beings in the world. Once again, in Oaxaca, we will explore the beauty of this city, with sights such as the Cathedral, the magnificent Santo Domingo church, the Museum of Gold, and the colourful “20 de Noviembre” market.
