We know that Oaxacan culture and traditions can be traced to pre-Columbian times and that we can still visit and enjoy many of the architectural accomplishments of our indigenous ancestors.

However, the only first-hand knowledge we have of Indian culture during the colonial period is to references made by Spanish writers and missionaries.

Based on these stories, were able to get a good idea of the integration process of the two cultures and the design and construction of a new world that would set the standards for correct social and Christian conduct for the people of Oaxaca.

Shortly following this transitional period, the provinces acquired certain cultural aspects which, especially after the nations independence, reflected a more unified vision, such as beautification and improvement projects like creating parks and gardens, as well as converting certain government buildings into cultural and recreational centres.
