WHAT YOU’LL DO
We meet at 8:00 AM in Macedonio Alcalá 802, Centro, Oaxaca de Juárez, Oaxaca, ring the bell ‘’A’’, between Bicibella and Café Punto Paz.
This adventure is for those who want a moment of connection with nature and at the same time indulge their senses with art, architecture and gastronomy of the region. It is a complete journey that you’d love for its landscapes and for the artisans that we visit on the route. Definitely a closer look at an unexplored side of Oaxaca.
We start at the top of the mountain to have a dose of pine and oak forest, the views of the mountains with the valley of Etla below will leave you speechless, our first destination will be the Centro de las Artes de San Agustín Etla (CASA) where the imposing architecture will dazzle you with its magic; the CASA hosts exhibitions, artistic residencies and workshops.
After touring the town we will head to Atzompa where we’ll meet a family of artisans that works with black clay. The influence of the Zapotec ancestors on the local artisans is a magical combination that creates a collection of magnificent and diverse pieces worthy of respect and admiration. A delicious and traditional meal will be the prize for completing a day of Culture, Nature and Adventure.
