Located 300 miles south of Mexico City and 5000 feet above sea level, the area surrounding Oaxaca City, Mexico, has been inhabited since prehistoric times, perhaps due to its pleasantly mild climate. This rich history and culture make it a fascinating destination, home to several important fiestas and renowned regional cuisine. The colonial-era buildings on the city’s main square date back to the 16th century, many restored to now house galleries, museums, hotels, and restaurants.
