Visited this town as part of town with stops in several towns. So, really only got to see one workshop, not the entire town. We enjoyed it and got to see alebrijes being made or in the process. Some are clearly the inexpensive sort for tourists, but some are truly great works of art that anyone would be proud to have in their home.

The town isn't very large, but is famous for the production of alebrijes, or carved and painted wooden spirit animals. Well worth a visit.

Our family of 4 recently had the pleasure of visiting Arrazola and loved it. The Alebrije shops were some of the finest we found in all of Mexico and would highly recommend short visit. Surprisingly the prices at the shops were quite reasonable, which you of course can negotiate too.

Beautiful place to visit, there are some places where the artisan actually carves the wood for your pieces, we visit, Armando Jimenez place and had the fortune to pain our own Alebrije as the perfect souvenir for the experience, many different styles and options to chose in Alebrijes when you walk on the streets of Arrazola.

The museum of alebrijes its a must, there you can see the evolution of the traditional wood carving and the change on the designs on colorful mixes.

Two places to eat a traditional Tlayuda o tostada, on the morning on the side of the school, on the way to the museum and on the afternoon a house in front of the ARRAZOLA sign is sales; tortas tostadas, tacos y tlayudas. Also on the entry you can get a small resturant with enchiladas and eggs if you like.

Dont miss the opportunity to visit this place when you are in Oaxaca and learn the true story of Alebrijes from Arrazola.

Alebriges made by hand with Love! This is a small Puebla where the history of Alebriges started. The art is handed down thru generation to generation. These artist do not use a pattern, or photos, or mold to work from to complete this art! You will be amazed at the attention to detail and colors that are used!

Near the Oax city, tis less known. Small town but very artistic. There is a museum next to church which is worth seeing. There is also an art gallery.

It´s one of the little towns that make "Alebrijes" the mexican fantastic colorful beasts, if you have the chancem adventure into town for the smaller stores/workshops, they are more authentic, single hand made and cheaper, most tour buses will take you to the bigger and expensive places they have arrangements with.
