The green quarry jewel: Santo Domingo

I'm in love with Oaxaca. And within all the city, Santo Domingo is my favorite building. Whenever I'm in Oaxaca, I try twice or more a day to walk around it.

Oaxaca's green heart: Santo Domingo's Etno-botanical garden

Within the green walls of one of the most beautiful mexican buildings there is an amazing garden. Located where it used to be the orchards of the monastery, the garden shelters over 1,300 varieties of plants.

This plant is a local variety of amaranto.

Many cactuses wer rescued when the higway between Oaxaca and Puebla was made within a natural protected area in Tehuacan.

Rain is collected from seillings in order to water plants in the garden.
