Visiting both the church and ex-convent are a must when visiting Oaxaca! Amazing details inside both buildings and not many tourists in the late afternoon or early morning. Amazed at the size of both buildings and many local bars and restaurants nearby!

This is a beautiful church filled with so much gold it glows; it's magnificent - But having seen so many churches in Mexico the past several years, they all do begin to lack any individuality. It's really just another beautiful church in Mexico.

Templo de Santo Domingo is the absolutely the most gorgeous Church I have ever been in. It is very ornate covered in gold. The interior is very reverant and quiet. Make sure you take a nice video camera, no flash photography allowed.

Go to the museum/monestary next door. It's beautiful and peaceful. The library and "treasure rooms" were wonderful to see.

State museum contained treasures from Monte Alban and Oaxaca culture. Problem--they decided to close the museum earlier than the sign stated, turned out the lights and locked half the rooms.
