We were shown this church on a private tour.

Do not miss seeing the organ in the choir loft. The contrast between this church and St. Dominic Guzamen in Oaxaca is striking.

This may be my favourite church in all of Mexico. The interior walls are painted in festive flowers, and the statues are impressive. There is also a painting of a seated Virgen de Guadalupe that may be unique, as she is always shown standing within her Mandorla or mantle. There is a charming high relief of St. Jerome on the...

If you're visiting Oaxaca, San Jeronimo's Temple in Tlacochahuaya is a must-see. On the outside it's just like any other mexican 16th century catholic church, nothing relevant. But it's the minute you walk in that you understand why you have to visit this church. All the walls were hand-painted by indigenous people hundreds of years ago with intricate and elaborated...

This should be corrected. It is NOT in Puerto Escondido, but a few miles from Oaxaca City . It is worth a visit, and takes a short time to admire the church.

I used to live in Oaxaca (the city) and now live in Pto Escondido. I love the town and the church in Tlacochahuaya. Leaving from Oaxaca you can be there in your own car in about 30-40 minutes. It is on the same route as El Tule, Hierba del Agua and Mitla, as well as other, lesser known ruins. If... More

The 16th Century Church of San Jeronimo, in Tlacochahuaya. This delightfully charming church was built in the late 16th century by the Dominicans, an order founded by Santo Domingo. The Virgen del Rosario, the Virgin Mary in her aspect of holding the Rosario, is well represented in Dominican churches as she appeared in the 13th century to Santo Domingo and... More

A colonial treasure in a very small village in the surroundings of Oaxaca. Great paintings and its fabulous organ as well as the whole decoration are the highlights. The visit can be combined with other villages around, where beautiful crafts are made, or Santa Maria del Tule.
