About the event

Today’s hike begins at the ruins of the never-completed Dominican  monastery near the center of Cuilapam de Guerrero and proceeds on city  streets and country lanes to Zaachila where the group will stop for  lunch. The grand monastery was begun in 1555 but abandoned about 40  years later. The admission fee of 45 pesos will gain you entrance to the  cloister area of the monastery at Cuilapam, the second floor of which  is used to identify, catalog and store artifacts taken from  archeological digs in the area. After spending about 30 minutes at the  monastery, the group will commence hiking through south Cuilapam, then  proceed along unpaved country roads to Zaachila, once the political  capitol of the Zapotec empire. You will note the street names in  Zaachila are in Zapotec. In the center of town we will explore the  archeological site which was excavated in the mid-1960’s and features  the tomb of Lord Nine Flower. 

There is a 65 pesos charge to enter the  archeological zone. After the hike we will dine at the marketplace  nearby.

Lunch is not included in the hike fee.

Time frame:  9 am to 2 pm  /  Distance:  7.9 Km (4.9 Mi)  /   Elevation change:  86 meters (180 feet)  /  Type:  point to point  /   Trail:  city sidewalks & streets, unpaved roads  / Exposure:  full  sun  /  Rating:  easy to moderate
