Oaxaca is one of Mexico's most beautiful colonial treasures. The town sits on a vast fertile plateau encircled by the majestic Sierra Madre del Sur mountain range and is a walkers delight. The city center is closed to traffic thus allowing one to amble from the north end where the splendedly restored Santo Domingo Church commands attention to the south end where you can sit under porticos of one of the quaintest zocalo's in all of Mexico.
Casa Aldama sits on a quiet street closed to traffic in the charming ""barrio"" of Xochimilco only 5 blocks from Santo Domingo. The adobe house meanders on three levels with the upper floor having the master bedroom/bath the main floor the living room and den/guest bedroom and bath and the lower level the dining room and kitchen opening to the lush garden.
