Religion in Oaxaca

It is tradition that from the first Friday of Lent different religious celebrations take place in important temples of the state, with traditional activities typical of the Oaxacan neighborhoods.

Among the activities that take place during Holy Week in Oaxaca include the exhibitions of banners and reliquaries of the different brotherhoods, theatrical performances in streets and altars of churches.

On the other hand, during Good Friday, the Procession of Silence takes place, in which the various brotherhoods of the city of Oaxaca participate.

There is no better opportunity to get more in touch with the local people than this celebration, despite your background or religion people will always try to integration to the festivities because if the believes are important the actions the do matter too.

There is food in every corner of the city, from the most traditional and even to the most international, typical candies being sold by the locals and fun and games for children as well.

And also during this season, there are also artistic manifestations that attract thousands of visitors to Oaxaca such as the Expo Feria Artesanal de Barro Negro, a master craftsmanship from Oaxaca.
