Sanctuary beautiful, rebuilt after earthquakes. So much you see is "new" and constructed by workers from another state who have the woodwork and goldwork skills.

Real gem! Built mainly between 1570 and 1608 as part of the city’s Dominican monastery. It has a finely carved baroque facade and nearly every square centimeter inside decorated with intricate gilt designs swirling around a profusion of painted figures

A temple like none I have seen so far and I have seen many in Mexico. The baroque style is fabulous and if you check it out ahead of time there are guides who tell the story of the temple in spanish at given times.

Contrary to the churches of France, destroyed by the revolution, this church is far more beautiful inside than outside. Its paintings, frescoes and gold work are remarkable. We hired a guide at the door for a thirty minute explanation and tour and are glad we did.

An amazing attraction located at the top end of walking street. Beautiful Decor. My main interest was the ethnobotanical garden located in the rear courtyard of the church.

One of the most interesting churches among twenty or so within walking distance of the Zocalo. A fine example of architecture before the separation of Church and State. One could just imagine how much labor went into building this elaborate house of worship.

Beautiful interior and fascinating history. A must see in Oaxaca city. You can get a paid guide if you choose although we didn't bother to do so. Don't miss the museum adjoining the church.

One of the most impessive church interiors I have ever seen (and I have seen many). What is more impressive is that it is used for mass all the time.

Not only is the Church beautiful but the Convent next door is a FINE Museum and Gardens. The exploration of Monte Alban is featured.
