The ceiling cupolas are carved with saints and the gold leaf alter is stunningly beautiful. We were lucky enough to watch a couple get married while visiting.

I am glad to have a place like this in México !!! It’s a shame to see a camping protest just right at the front door of the beautiful church !!! Please take it away!!!

The interior decoration of Santo Domingo is not like anything I have seen anywhere else in a church. I certainly have seen other place that match it in the sheer amount of decoration and there are others that offer more gold leaf or silver surfaces....More

The center of so many interesting activities. Weddings, teenagers hanging out, sellers of local artistries, and the church is gorgeous.

The artifacts in the museum are amazing to see. The church is awesome. What made it unforgettable was a wedding in the church with a public procession, band and all down the street afterwards!

Better than the Cathedral itself, this church is the most important church in Oaxaca City and located in a nice walkable touristy street with lots of shopping and restaurants, as well as a little market right outside the church.

Beautiful Church, both inside and outside. Try to make it at around 11 am when they offer a small chat (in Spanish) about the history of how the temple came to be in exchange for a donation. Make sure you take a photo with the...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
