If you were thinking about buying a card of Oaxaca, here is a list of the Top 10 Landmarks you want to remember in a postal or a photography.
The Templo de Santo Domingo is one of the most important Colonial buildings in Mexico, and is a perfect photo opportunity, surrounded by all those cactus. This is the quintessential Oaxaca image.
It was hard to give Monte Alban the second place, some people might think it should be number one, but no matter what number it is, it is something to remember, capture, take home and show to your friends. And it goes without saying the whole site presents amazing views you can take with you.
Some other churches, like the Basilica de la Soledad and the Cathedral are also important landmarks in Oaxaca, and some of the most important buildings in the city, so you'll want to take them with you as well, either on a picture, a postal, a t-shirt or a mug. So many options!
As for other ruins, Mitla and Yagul are not only important, but beautiful, unique, very Oaxacan and it's guaranteed you'll never forget them.
If what you like is modern art and architecture, IAGO is the perfect landmark for you. No Oaxaca travel book is complete without a picture of IAGO, be playful and imaginative while taking photos of this school, the building will help you!
