Templo de Santo Domingo de Guzman, Oaxaca
(4.9/5 based on 1,400+ 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.
