Given that Oaxaca is a fairly compact and neat little city, when we talk of the area outside the city centre, the distances are not very far and can easily be walked from the most central points. However, this section includes things to see and do heading out north, northwest, west and southwards from the Zócalo and Santo Domingo.
In a Nutshell
Outside Oaxaca city centre there are lots of different points of interest for you to enjoy. Whether you're after historic churches or some excellent opportunities to pick up Oaxaca Arts and Crafts, your exploration of Oaxaca should go much further than just the streets surrounding the very heart of the city.
