The interior is beautiful and outside is an active plaza. Off the side streets/pedestrian plaza very active with vendors and nice boutique shops as well as trinket shops and fine restaurants. Walk from here, downhill to the Zocalo town center.

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
