Best places to attend Semana Santa in Latin America
Planning to visit Latin America around Easter? You might consider timing your visit to take in the spectacular Semana San…
The Spanish colonial city Oaxaca (pronounced wa-ha-ca), was founded in 1529, near an Indian settlement called Huaxyacac. Its location is ideal, with a superb mountain climate that means it never gets too hot or cold. The city has a strong indigenous influence and a thriving artistic community, as well as some beautiful Spanish colonial architecture and fine museums, giving itself an unexpectedly cosmopolitan atmosphere.
The state of Oaxaca maintains a strong indigenous identity expressed in local life, monuments, and crafts. Oaxaca's markets offer a fascinating insight into these, with papier- mache, wood-carvings, textiles and black pottery. In addition, you can visit the Centro Cultural and the Baroque Cathedral and experience the many outdoor Festivals including the month-long Gualaguezta Festival at Easter.
