Spanish School in Oaxaca


About Oaxaca

Located in Mexico’s central valley, Oaxaca was designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site for its Spanish colonial buildings and nearby archaeological center, Monte Albán. Oaxaca is known for its thriving artisan community best seen around the Zócalo, the colonial center’s main square. Its diverse population consists of over a dozen ethnic groups like the Mixtecs and Zapotecs, who bring the city to life with a variety of traditions, dances, music, languages, and cuisine. All this is present in numerous museums, art galleries, open-air markets, outdoor cafes, restaurants, and picturesque cobblestone streets.

Our school

Just 2 blocks from the beautiful 16th century Santo Domingo convent and 4 blocks from the zócalo, our oaxaca Spanish school location is as central as it gets. This privileged setting means that you will find a wide variety of internet cafes, restaurants, museums and art galleries right in the vicinity. The building is an old colonial home with thick walls that keep classrooms cool and a large central patio perfect for socializing with international friends over a drink or snack.
