Mexican Baroque in the State of Oaxaca

I’d like to post some pictures of the parish church of Tlacolula, or specifically the 17th century chapel attached to the bigger, later church. It is called the Capilla del SeƱor del Tlacolula, and it is a great example of the colonial Mexican baroque style.

Back in Oaxaca de Juarez, there is another church, Templo de Santo Domingo de Guzman, that exhibits very similar Mexican Baroque. However, it is on a much bigger scale.
