A day in Tlacolula de Matamoros will introduce you to one of the oldest, largest, and busiest markets in Oaxaca State. Tlacolula is also home to a 16th-century Dominican church. Its chapel, “La Capilla del Señor de Tlacolula,” is known for its Baroque ornate decoration and a crucifix to which many miracles have been ascribed. This Sunday market is one of the most authentic markets of Oaxaca, selling barbacoa de chivo, pan de cazuela, mezcal, pulque, tejate and handcrafts of this region.
A day long voyage through the Mixteca region will offer the chance to see the Dominican Route of Oaxaca, named as such due to the religious order of friars that arrived in the region in 1529. Our trip will cover the church and monastery of Santo Domingo Yanhuitlan, the church and open chapel in San Pedro & San Pablo Teposcolula and the church of San Juan Bautista in Coixtlahuaca.
