Fodor's Review

After he was orphaned, 12-year-old Benito Juárez, the future Mexican president and the first indigenous one, walked to Oaxaca from his village in the mountains. He was taken in by a bookbinder named Antonio Salanueva, whose colonial-era home is now a small museum honoring the president. A carefully restored workshop and gallery space, as well as a kitchen, dining room, and bedroom give you a peek at 19th-century Oaxacan life.
