About the event

This popular exclusive excursion starts in Santo Domingo Yanhuitlan, a village in the Mixteca region of the state. In colonial times Yanhuitlan was an important

center of trade. Our first stop will be at the magnificent church and monastery erected in the late 1500’s, built with the labor of 6000 native people. The stone

for the edifice was quarried eleven miles from town and hauled to the worksite. The splendid antique pipe organ, built about 1700 and restored in 1998, is used

now for occasional concerts. Next we will visit the nearby home and studio of the famed ceramic artist, Manuel Reyes and his wife Maricela, a gifted artist in her

own right. Leaving Yanhuitlan, we will travel to Huitzo, the northernmost town in the Etla valley. We will stop for lunch there at Los Adobes restaurant. Next we

will see the art studio of Enrique Flores, a prolific painter. The day will conclude with a stop at the restored church and monastery in the center of town if there is time.
