This temple and former convent, six blocks north of the zocalo, Before the buildings were constructed in the 16th century, the area was the site of a summer festival celebrated by Oaxaca’s indigenous people. That festival later became the Guelaguetza, Oaxaca’s most treasured celebration. Today’s church plays an integral role in the festivities leading up to Easter.
