Church of Santo Domingo

Address: C. Macedonio Alcalá s/n, RUTA INDEPENDENCIA, Centro, 68000 Oaxaca de Juárez, Oax., Mexico.

The beautiful Santo Domingo is the most splendid of Oaxaca's churches, with a finely carved baroque façade and almost every square inch inside decorated in 3D relief with intricate golden designs revolving around a profusion of painted figures. The most elaborate of all is the 18th-century Chapel of the Virgin of the Rosary (Capilla del Rosario) on the south side. The entire church takes on a magical, warm glow during the candlelit afternoon mass.

Santo Domingo was built primarily between 1570 and 1608 as part of the city's Dominican monastery, with the best craftsmen from Puebla and elsewhere helping in its construction. Like other large buildings in this earthquake-prone region, it has immensely thick stone walls.

Saint Dominic de Guzmán (1172−1221), the Spanish monk who founded the Dominican order, appears on the right as one of two figures supporting a church in the center of the façade, and his elaborate family tree adorns the ceiling immediately inside. Dominicans observed strict vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, and in Mexico they protected the indigenous people from the excesses of other settlers.

November 20 Market

Address: 20 de Noviembre 512, 68000 Oaxaca de Juárez, Oax., Mexico.

The November 20 market in central Oaxaca is a must-see, especially if you are hungry! The sights and smells of the November 20 market are captivating, especially if you haven't visited a market in Oaxaca before.

The November 20 market has a variety of food stalls where you can taste many Oaxacan specialties, but carnivores flock to the corridor known as El Pasillo de las Carnes Asadas (the smoke aisle). Follow your nose to find it: The smoke and smell of roast meat in the air is quite strong. You can select the meat that looks best to you and it will be grilled to your specifications while you watch. Find a spot at one of the long tables with benches and order salsa and guacamole to accompany your food. Buy some tortillas from one of the passing vendors, and enjoy!

However, it's not all about roast meat; There are many other foods available to buy there as well, such as: mole, empanadas, tlayudas, quesadillas, broths, appetizers, etc. There is also the usual market merchandise that is typical of all markets in Oaxaca, dried chiles, vegetables, crafts, etc. This market has the impression of merging with the Benito Juárez market, since one is opposite the other.

Benito Juarez Market

Address: Las Casas S/N, Centro, 68000 Oaxaca de Juárez, Oax..

Vibrant covered market with vendors selling produce, prepared foods, crafts and textiles.

This market has a little of everything Oaxaca. Although it is not indicated, the Benito Juárez market is divided into sections, all the butcher shops are in one part, all the artisans in another and the cheese shops in another, etc. In this wonderful little market you can find almost anything you want to buy, as there is a small representation of all things Oaxacan here. The Benito Juárez market is very popular with tourists due to its central location, but it is also very popular with Oaxacans. With the Benito Juárez market so close to the center, can you afford not to visit it?
