El museo de Santo Domingo

This is an amazing museum. We will actually be visiting it three times for history excursions while we're here, but I just wanted to give you taste of what I got to see last weekend while I was there.

This is a beautiful fountain--one of the first things you see as you enter the grounds of the church.

Everything is painted in gold.

These are some of the urns that the priests would burn incense in as offerings. The different urns represent the different gods the zapotecas-mixtecas worshipped.
