In San Pedro y San Pablo
|San Pedro y San Pablo Etla|
| Etla is in the northwest of Oaxaca's Central
Valley. The church, monastery, and cloister were completed
in 1636. As of 2005 the population was 7637. In 1991 we
were privileged to be taken around the church and the
former convento by the encargado de la parroquia.
Our tour begins with St.
Anthony of Padua.
