Templo de Santo Domingo de Guzman, Oaxaca

(4.9/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
Visit Templo de Santo Domingo de Guzman, a prime example of New Spanish Baroque architecture dating back to the 16th century. Built during a period of over 200 years, the church has had quite a turbulent history, having suffered from earthquakes throughout the centuries. On the facade, which is flanked by two bell towers, find a statue of Santo Domingo de Guzman, who founded the Dominican order. Inside, there you can appreciate the liberal use of gold all throughout, which creates a warm atmosphere when candles are lit during evening mass. Put Templo de Santo Domingo de Guzman and other Oaxaca attractions into our Oaxaca trip itinerary builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • We visited a lot of churches in Oaxaca and this was by far the most impressive. It is gorgeous. Also, next door to a fabulous museum. Don't miss this.  more »
  • Here is explained with detailed the way in which vivian Indians and as they were Cristianizados, it was a painful process but I think miscegenation that we now know, is very nice the Museum and this very taken care, really worth while one goes there, (at least to spend two hours) that takes you from A wing z. is a stop that one can not overlook the fact Here is unearth important facts of our history.
