About Oaxaca

Capital of the state of Oaxaca, about 300 miles south of Mexico City, the area has been inhabited since prehistoric times, while the city's origins date back to the 16th century.

Oaxaca is also renowned for its lively festivals and fiestas, as well as its powerful mezcal, a local alcoholic drink, which like tequila, is derived from the agave plant.
