Oaxaca, Oax.

The Old Antequera ...

Oaxaca is the historic home of the Zapotec and Mixtec peoples. One of Mexico's most famous leaders, Benito Juárez, came from the Oaxacan village of San Pablo Guelatao. Other famous Oaxacans include Rufino Tamayo, Porfirio Díaz, Francisco Toledo, María Sabina García, J. Alberto Canseco Díaz, Major League Baseball player Vinny Castilla and many other writers, artists and politicians.

Oaxaca has a number of native crafts, including the production of alebrijes, weaving and black clay objects. It is also known for producing the Gusano Rojo Mezcal, with a worm inside the bottle.
