A very beautiful church, lovingly restored. The botanical gardens are a treasure of native plants. Get there early for a guided tour. Lots of time can be spent in both the church and the gardens, time very well spent. A definite must see in Oaxaca.

This is one of the most spectacularly beautiful colonial churches I have ever seen. It was completely restored in 2012 and is very ornate.

A must do while in Oaxaca! The botanical garden with its amazing cactus was truly thrilling to see! Centrally located in the city center.

I liked very much the work and dedication people made to create it. Nice place to visit great construction. Can't believe how much money the religion can spend to create such master pieces.

We are not religious and we found this building to be extraordinary. It is a must see and is close to the zocolo.
