About the event

Cuilapam de Guerrero was a bustling trade center when the Spanish arrived in 1523. Dominican monks followed shortly after and embarked on building a

grand monestery there. The work was not finished and the site sat unused until roof was put on the church in 1905 and it became a parish center. We will

visit the ex-Monestery of Santiago Apostol. 

We will also visit the archeological site in Zaachila, which lay buried until it was partially excavated in the mid- 1960s. The Tomb of Lord Nine Flower is open to the public and is one of the finest examples in the region. A small museum has photos of the many extraordinary artifacts found in Zaachila. 

Dr. Robert Markens, a renown archeologist and a great friend of the OLL, will guide this tour.
