On the southernmost Pacific coast of Mexico is the state of Oaxaca.
It’s the center of commerce for the 16 Indian cultures that live in the surrounding hills.
Here as nowhere else history tradition and prehispanic culture all blend with the excitement of the contemporary world.

Oaxacans are so proud of their capital that they’ve designated the entire city of Oaxaca a national historic monument. No new building is permitted within 5 kilometers of the city center.
Each day the local indians gather at Oaxaca’s shady central plaza to display their handicrafts. The plaza is one of the most beautiful in all of Mexico
and provides an inviting spot for leisurely relaxation
or perhaps for a shoe-shine and a morning cup of coffee. Its colonial charm and streetside cafes are reminiscent of the older sections of a fine European town.
A few blocks from the plaza is the church of Santo Domingo – its modest exterior gives way to a gilded, highly ornamented interior.

At the highest point of the ceiling hundreds of angel faces converge where God’s eye can watch over them and the world.
The old convent next door to the church of Santo Domingo has been converted into the Oaxacan regional museum. It houses a collection which includes
finely wrought Mixtec jewelry. and unusual artifacts. These pieces are just part of the treasure that is one the largest ever found in the Americas.
