A must-visit site in Oaxaca
Aug 2021
While the facade of the Santo Domingo temple is a very nice example of colonial baroque architecture and hard to miss while walking the city, its beautiful interior is definitely worth the time to admire at a slow pace.

An impressive church
Dec 2020
The most extravagantly beautiful church in Oaxaca and the most Iconic. Its free to enter except for one thing, its closed most of the time and the times posted on the door are, lets just say, not adhered to with swiss precision. More like, island time. So basically you have to camp out in the plaza and wait and hope that today is the day when they'll decide to open the place within half an hour of the posted time. Is it worth it? Yes!!!

Wonderful church. Was able to sneak in before an early morning mass, otherwise it is closed due to Covid.

Beautiful church. Reminds me of the sistine chapel for some reason, jaw dropping when you first walk in. Worth a visit for anyone who is visiting the city

I can't believe this is in Oaxaca

Baroque style church that is amazing to see!! It's in the heart of town and just need to take a look to believe. Just beware, no flash photography and don't touch anything or else you'll feel the wrath of the 'caretaker'.

Santo Domingo is the most beautiful church in Oaxaca. Is a must visit when in Oaxaca. Is one of the most amazing churches is Mexico. The inside is several times more incredible than its outside. Spend time looking at the ceiling.
