A visit here was for two things: one was to see the great ruins of Monte Alban in the Oaxaca Valley and the other one is the enchanting "Zocalo" which is the name that is given to the characteristic town's centers of Mexico.

The zocalo is the heart of the city and full of modern cafes that line two sides of the square where people gather together.

In Oaxaca there are 27 cathedrals and is one of the cities with most churches in Mexico.

The most imposing and beautiful among them is the "The Iglesia de Santo Domingo", a Dominican church founded in 1575, is located just north of Oaxaca City’s main square.

I also enjoyed the "Centro Historico district", with many colonial buildings and México atmosphere making the area a must visit sight.

I remember that one day while strolling around this great place, I met a group of students that as soon as the saw me they dashed to the nearby fountain and shouting take a picture of us and that was really hilarious.

I also remember a bustling market where they sold different variety of fish, poultry, red meat, delicious bread and with fine 'Comedores" eating places lining the entrance of the market.

I just love the atmosphere of these places and the genuine, lovely and cozy people working in it.

I felt very much accepted by the local people here in Oaxaca and the welcoming ambiance of the city made me feel really excellent and for sure will be one of the places that I will remember with more pleasure of Mexico.
