A verdant valley with water coursing down the hills and ditches is a rarity in Oaxaca.... it is well worth seeing and enjoying this village for that alone. Unfortunately the Centro de Artes was closed when we went and finding the paper workshop was difficult....More

El Centro de Arte de San Agustin Etla (El CASA), is a very nice ex-cotton factory, recently beautifully renovated to host an Art Center. Located in the barrio of Vista Hermosa Etla, its view is unparallel. It's a very big attraction for the village.
