The museum is very well done. They had just reopened the exhibition of artifacts from Monte Alban Tomb 7, which was just amazing. They've done an excellent job of using modern display techniques in a building that must be 500 or so years old. Well...More
Its strikingly beautiful- and the restoration seems to be always in process. There are many beautiful pictures on the ceilings and there are tours if you want to understand even a small fraction of the statues and relics. The only thing out of tune is...More
What a glorious, well preserved church with such beautiful detail. It took us 2 days to see all around the church grounds which include the cultural museum and botanical garden. The church is free of course and i recommend you take the time to sit...More
This church was I believe built more than 400 years ago by the Dominican missionaries and there is still a monastery attached but only housing 4 monks. They are currently building a new altar which at present is in carved wood which will be covered...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
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 through the magic cities in the north. So you might combine one of these ours with the cathedral. He picks out the best restaurants - reasonably priced. His local phone is 513-03-67 or 515-54-00.
