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 a 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 Flowers 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. Thursday is market day in Zaachila and we will visit the market.

Not included: Cost of lunch and food, drink. We will dine in the Mercado Gastronomico on the west side of Zaachila. There are a number of food vendors there eager to serve you. Barbacoa (either goat or lamb) is a favorite dish. Probable cost of lunch will be about 150 pesos.
