Its cultural, artistic and gastronomic heritage makes the city of Oaxaca de Juárez, in the state of the same name, one of Mexico’s main tourist destinations. To find out, you can take a stroll through the old town, which has been declared a World Heritage Site for its majestic green stone buildings and is known as the «Verde Antequera»; the same goes for the cultural center of Santo Domingo, which is characterized by the old Dominican monastery.

From here you can continue your tour along the Macedonio Alcalá path. Roads diverging from it lead to important museums such as the Textile Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Oaxaca (MACO), founded by the popular Oaxacan painter Francisco Toledo. The corridor is also an important place to buy handicrafts, often with the opportunity to see live the process of their manufacture. The walk is brightened by restaurants and hotels with colorful facades and a lively atmosphere.

A visit to the traditional market of 20 de Noviembre and its alley of smokehouses, where you can buy cecina, tasajo and tlayudas and prepare them right away, should be on your list of things to do in Oaxaca. The merchants, popularly called marchantes, roam the area with baskets full of quesillo, chapulines, peppers and tortillas to complete the culinary feast. Nearby is the Benito-Juárez market, where you can find dozens of local handicrafts such as alebrijes, embroidery, pillows and even mezcals from Oaxaca at very good prices.
