Basilica de la Soledad, Oaxaca
(4.6/5 based on 200 reviews on the web)
Witness grand 17th-century architecture at Basilica de la Soledad, located Oaxaca city's historic center, which has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Built between 1682 and 1690 from green cantera stone, the church is laid out in the shape of a Latin cross. Admire the church's baroque exterior, with its spires and towers intentionally sitting low to withstand earthquakes. The facade displays statues of religious icons, including the Virgin Mary. Inside, head to the west gallery and find an organ that dates back to 1686. Put Basilica de la Soledad and other Oaxaca attractions into our Oaxaca itinerary maker, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • The Church is certainly a jewel of Oaxaca City worth visiting it and going out to sit and rest a little eating a snow milk burned with accompanied by typical sweets of Oaxaca tuna sold there same.

  • Even if you don't have the spectacle of Santo Domingo, take an hour to visit this church and to appreciate the details of its architecture and decoration. It is next to a beautiful place, the Plaza de la Danza, full of shadow and stalls selling sweets and ice cream. Real place with families strolling.

  • The Church, built around 1680 of beautiful green and yellow quarry. With its spacious atrium and the next part is a small museum. Outside of the Atrium you can wear delicious Nieves and traditional waters. Parking in the lower Street (independence). This church is belongs to our Lady of solitude where in your day is the procession silently through the streets of Oaxaca to the Church. It is a place not to be missed since it was built up to their translations.
