>> Oaxaca

The city of Oaxaca is the capital and largest city of the Mexican state of the same name. The area is known as the three “Valles Centrales” region and is surrounded by thick forests of pine and holms oak. The important Monte Alban archaeological site is close to the city. At the center of the town is the Plaza de la Constitucion, commonly referred to as the Zocalo. It was built by Alonso Garcia Bravo around 1529. The plaza was planted with ash trees in the 18th century, and the marble fountain was added at this time as well. The plaza is surrounded by various portals. On the south side of the plaza are the Portales de Ex-Palacio de Gobierno, which was vacated by the government in 2005 and then reopened as a museum called “Museo del Palacio Espacio de Diversidad”. Other portals include the “Portal de Mercadores” on the eastern side, “Portal de Claverias” on the north side and the “Portal del Senor” on the west side. Northwest of the Zocalo is the Alameda de Leon, a garden area. The Andador Macedonio Alcala is a street in the center of Oaxaca City that was closed to vehicular traffic some years ago. Now only pedestrians are permitted to pass by here. Along the street are notable public places such as the original building to house the Universidad Autonoma de Benito Juarez.
