It was such a fascinating feeling to be able to walk through these ruins that are one of the most important archeological sites in the state of Oaxaca. These ruins were occupied and functioned as the main religious center when the Spanish arrived in the 1520s. It was exciting to know a little bit more about these ruins through our friends, Bricia and Fernando, who showed us around and told us a little bit of the Mitla history.
I pranced around and felt very honored and proud to be there. Definitely one of my 2013 highlights!
Stay tuned in next week as I still have so many photos from Oaxaca that I have yet to posts + outfits and diary!
