Folk Art in San Pedro and San Pablo Ayutla Mixes

This village is in the highlands of Oaxaca also known as the Sierra Juarez. Proud to boast that this region was never conquered due to its hard geography, Ayutla is the entrance point into Mixe Indian Territory. There are beautiful traditional terracotta pieces, unusual and amazing pots for plants, as well as candle-holders, outdoor fireplaces (chimeneas) and other ornaments. Ayutla is also a vibrant Indian market town on Sundays.
