The tour starts at the city of Las Canteras where the General State Archive is located. We will continue towards the center of Santa Maria Ixcotel, a small picturesque town next to the City of Oaxaca, to return on a walker that will take us to the Baseball Stadium “Eduardo Vasconcelos”, where the “Guerreros de Oaxaca” play.
We will begin the ascent from the streets of the Historic Center of Oaxaca City, passing through the Temple of Santo Domingo de Guzmán, the Cruz de Piedra, the Xochimilco neighborhood, going up the Fortín Stairs (a little more than one hundred steps), arriving at the Guelaguetza Auditorium, continuing a climb up to the Municipal Observatory to reach the highest point of the route, with a bit of hiking to the place “La Escarpada”.
The run continues by visiting the Cathedral of the City and the Alameda, reaching the Macedonio Alcalá Theater and its beautiful front. We will run along Calle 5 de Mayo, reaching El Pañuelito, a place where you can enjoy a good coffee.
This route is challenging, but by the time the tour wraps up, it’ll totally be worth it for you’ll get to capture some incredible snapshots of the beautiful city of Oaxaca. We are sure that you’ll have a blast and go home with a truly delightful experience.
