Archeological Ruins of Zaachila and Cuilapam
Thu / 10 Jan / 9 am to 4 pm
Oaxaca archeologist Dr. Robert Markens will give a fascinating tour of the archeological ruins in Zaachila, located just a block from the town center. The tomb of Lord Nine Flower was excavated in the mid-1960’s and yielded many exquisite treasures. Then the group will move on to the nearby town of Cuilapam, where the grand ruins of the never-completed Dominican monastery can be explored. Dr. Markens will take the group through the monastery cloister, where artifacts from archeological sites around Oaxaca are brought to be cleaned, catalogued and preserved. There will be an admission charge of 40 pesos per person at both the Zaachila and Cuilapam sites.
The group will enjoy an incredible buffet lunch at the Hacienda Cuilapam after the tour. (Note: tour price does not include the cost of lunch, which will be about 200 pesos for food & drink.)

Payment either at the OLL front desk or on the OLL Event page https://www.oaxlibrary.org/online-store. Early registration advised. Members: 350 pesos Non-members: 400 pesos
