No trip to Mexico would be complete without a visit to a church, right? Here in Oaxaca, the Templo de Santo Domingo is a Baroque church complex that was built by the Dominicans over a period of 200+ years between the 16th and 18th Centuries.
Wait. Correction. It was built by the enslaved peoples in and around the Oaxaca Valley.
It’s a dark and bloody history from the viewpoint of indigenous human beings. Maybe, there is a little salvation in that they have their Virgen de Guadalupe, a uniquely Mexican identity and interpretation within Catholicism. I hope so.
Some photos from late afternoon in the Templo:
