Get to know the Convent of San Jerónimo and marvel at its extraordinary architecture and the beautiful paintings from the New Spanish period that decorate the sacristy. In the atrium, admire the clock mounted atop a quarry tower, a witness to the history of this village for more than 100 years.

Look closely at the cheese-making process, Aculco’s great treasure. Taste Oaxaca and manchego cheeses with their combinations of garlic and spices. Butter and milk candy are also a required indulgence.
