  • I like this pleace ..
  • Formerly called Sahayuco, that wants to say foot of cerro. It later adopted the name of Cuilapam Quayugol and Ampa-Valley. According to various etymologies Cuilapan has many meanings: "a place that is on the back" or "water back", other authors attribute the name to the following roots: Cuitla: "dirt" and bread: "on" like "trash or manure"; even place of cocoyoles (fruit characterized by its hardness). Currently in the region of the central valleys of Oaxaca. Leaving the city by Juarez Avenue turn right into peripheral. Road to Zaachila, passing by Xoxocotlan and in it "and" that goes to the right to Arrazola continue right. Imposing ex-convent that its construction began in 1555. 461 years in charge of the Dominican friars. Counts with a chapel open feature of the time currently in ruins. The ex-convent worth knowing it. The view from the part high is unmatched. Still is can appreciate a "tree" of the order initial of the friars Dominican, facing the room "of Profundis". Is keeps the cell where was prisoner Don Vicente Guerrero before being shot. And there is a monument in his honor in the part South of the former convent.
