Camino Real Oaxaca

Camino Real Oaxaca

Map
300 5 de Mayo, Oaxaca, , Mexico

Originally a Dominican convent built in 1576, the Camino Real is filled with history. Bougainvillea spills over the cloister archways; a stone basin where nuns once laundered their habits is now a courtyard fountain. Indoors, guest rooms have ebony-hued antique beds and terra-cotta tiled ceilings, with 16th-century frescoes covering some of the walls. At the restaurant, El Refectorio, sample one of seven variations on the classic mole, the regional specialty made from ground chiles, chocolate, and nuts.
