In a great city like Oaxaca de Juárez, we feel proud for many reasons, one of them is its emblematic buildings and places, which give Oaxaca that unique appearance and with that beauty position it as one of the tourist places that everyone wants. to visit.
This is how, if we take a walk through the city itself, we will find true architectural beauties, such as the famous “Macedonio Alcalá” Theater, which is an artistic venue located in the historic center, on the streets of Av. Independencia (No.900) and 5 de Mayo, it was built in 1909, in art nouveau style, being considered one of the most important theaters in the country. It is an example of modernist architecture with French influences, characteristic of the Porfiriato. Its name is in honor of the Mexican musician and composer of the XIX century, author of the waltz “Dios never dies”.
The building of the Faculty of Medicine of the Autonomous University “Benito Juárez” of Oaxaca. It was the hacienda of Aguilera, a sumptuous mansion in which the six monolithic columns of polished granite stand out from the main facing, with a composite capital and a classic triangular pediment, in whose tympanum an equine medallion was placed in the center and on its sides, human figures with tools in an allegory of art, industry and the field. A fountain surrounded by a small garden stands out from the front. This construction was completed in 1913. It is located on Calzada San Felipe del Agua, in the former farm of Aguilera.
The Fountain of the 8 Regions was built and inaugurated in 1957. It was a proposal by Arch. Octavio Flores Aguillón, who was Director of Public Works, to represent ethnic origins and to welcome all visitors. The proposal was approved and the fountain was installed first at the exit to Mexico. During the period of Governor Rodolfo Brena Torres from 1962 to 1968, the UABJO School of Medicine was built, making the decision that to decorate the esplanade of this educational institution, the Fountain of the 8 Regions would be moved here, which at that time It was still known as the source of the 7 regions, which became the top of the Calzada “Porfirio Díaz”. Its design stands out for the female sculptures approximately two meters high, made in bronze by the artist Carmen Antúnez, having at the center the character of Valles Centrales a Danzante de la Pluma; In 2006, upon recognizing that there are two Sierras, the North and the South, the Source became the Source of the 8 Regions.
The Oaxaca Cathedral was built in 1535, adorning the heart of the historic center, this temple being consecrated on July 12, 1733, dedicated to Our Lady of the Assumption. Because it is in front of the Alameda, it is an ideal setting for performing cultural music concerts, which in times prior to the pandemic, were used to perform with the participation of various groups of musicians, of different genres and styles of music. On the side of this cathedral in the month of December, stalls of delicious donuts are installed, having a great atmosphere in this place.
And just like these places that we mentioned earlier, there are many more that make our Capital a great city that, first of all, we Oaxacans are proud of it, but which also positions it as one of the best tourist places in Mexico and preferably international tourism.
