Oaxaca: Oaxaca walking tour and market

Oaxaca walking tour and market

With its nostalgic architecture, vibrant arts scene and celebrated regional gastronomy, Oaxaca is without a doubt one of Mexico's most charming towns.

Explore the cobbled colonial streets on foot, visiting the governmental palace, cathedral and Santo Domingo church and the best of the city's many handicrafts shops and galleries.

To get a glimpse of everyday Oaxacan life, visit a local market heaving with a dazzling array of fresh produce. Here you'll also find stalls selling the giant tlayuda tortillas for which Oaxaca is known, as well as bustling chocolate making stands where you can choose ingredients such as almonds and cinnamon to add to the mix.
