Imagine that Spaniards didn´t discovered America when this tree was something big already! The church besides is small, simply and beautiful. If you were in oaxaca for one day and you didn´t visit this beauty, don´t tell your friends you visited Oaxaca...

The Tule Tree is in a cute garden in Tule and it is fun to look to see what creatures you can find in the bark of the tree.
