I only got to peek inside as it was Saturday and weddings were booked but what I saw was eye popping grandeur. We we told couples come from all over Mexico to be married there and I could see why.

Whilst the church itself is very beautiful, the main claim to glory is a fabulous convent which houses the huge exhibition of the cultures of Oaxaca. Whilst Rufino museum has may sculptures form other areas of Mexico, the Convent houses exclusively the art from Oaxaca....More

The best guide ever is Omar Lescas Diaz. His English is wonderful and he knows "all" the history of the area. It may not be worth his while to do one building like this. He is excellent for Monte Alban and the natural tour... More
