Private tours in Oaxaca City
During your visit to Oaxaca, a huge chunk of your time will be walking to, from, or across the Temple of Santo Domingo. The temple is surrounded by amazing restaurants, bars, and coffee shops all within walking distance as you’ll find locals and tourists hanging out at the temple for sunset. You’re also allowed to enter inside Santo Domingo but make sure to keep quiet and respect those praying.
Oaxaca is home to many impressive churches, but the most stunning is Santo Domingo. The exuberant baroque interior of this church means that every surface is covered in art or gold leaf. The Rosary Chapel, which was a later addition, is particularly beautiful. The former friary contains the Museo de las Culturas de Oaxaca, a large and well-presented museum.
