The cultural heritage of the Mixteca Alta includes tangible and intangible aspects. Impressive prehispanic constructions are brought together with the extraordinary Dominican convents and churches built since the sixteenth century during the Viceroyalty. The altarpieces of their temples and paintings that decorate the interior of these monuments are an attraction worth knowing. In addition to this, the numerous festivals that are held throughout the year in all communities invite the appreciation of this intangible heritage.
