In former monastic grounds behind the Templo de Santo Domingo, this garden features plants from around Oaxaca state, including a staggering variety of cacti. Though it has been growing only since the 1990s, it’s already a fascinating demonstration of Oaxaca’s biodiversity. Visits are by guided tour only; be there five minutes before they start.
