Oaxaca : Michelin's recommendations
Before heading for the emblematic archaeological sites in the central valleys, plan to stop off in Oaxaca and even stay a few days here to take in all the different facets of this dynamic and highly appealing capital. Adolfo Morales and Rufino Tamayo encouraged the artistic scene here, now brimming with galleries and remarkable museums. You’ll find crafts at the markets, and civil and religious colonial buildings - like the convent of Santo Domingo - embellishing the northern part of town. Oaxaca has everything you could ask for.
