Located in the heart of this colonial city is the Quinta Real, the converted 16th-century Convent of Santa Catalina de Siena. The main square is just four blocks away. This historical gem is dotted with 400-year-old frescoes, ancient archways and intimate patio courtyards, offering colonial décor with modern comforts.
The rooms and suites of Quinta Real Oaxaca are each decorated in a Mexican colonial style and face either the interior garden areas or picturesque streets. There is a lovely swimming pool which occupies the whole of a second adjacent courtyard, and three restaurants including the original kitchen which is now the breakfast room.
