The Tlacolula Valley is a short drive from Oaxaca and has been a cultural and historical centre since the 7th century BC. Over 2,500 years of civilization have filled the 50-kilometre valley with diverse attractions reflecting its Olmec, Zapotec, Mixtec, Aztec and Spanish heritage. The Arbol del Tule, which is reputed to be one of the world’s largest trees, is over 2,000 years old and is situated in the Santa Maria del Tule churchyard.
