In town you also find the Cutlery Art a teaching that the Spanish thought us during the conquest , therefor the process of this artistic swords, knifes, blades among others are only handmade using the technique from Toledo Spain.

Yes, that’s right mezcal made in pottery.  Of course let’s not forget about the Mezcal tasting, you know what they say here in Oaxaca: “For every bad- drink mezcal! For every joy- mezcal enjoy! And if there is no remedy come to Oaxaca because - mezcal is the medicine!”
