Ex-Monastery of Santiago Apóstol

Less than seven miles south of the historic Centro area of Oxaca de Juarez is an equally historic but often overlooked masterpiece of workmanship—though it was never really finished.

Four Dominican Monks started construction on Ex-monastery of Santiago Apóstol in the 1550s. However, the complex’s planned grandeur was cut short. Work on the site stopped by 1650 due to construction costs and a loss of local labor.
