Soledad is beautiful when viewed from the street to the North just after sunset. The sky is a deep blue and the exterior of the Basilica is illuminated. Beautiful!
The visit was worth it to see the representations of Soledad. The museum might have offered more explanation for non-Spanish speakers, but we still enjoyed it. Nearby, as a bonus, is a shady plaza with several excellent ice cream (nieves) stands with unusual and delicious flavors.

The Basilica is full of people day and night and is very ornate with lots of gold leafing. During Lent it was filled with many bouquets of flowers. The Museum is a must to learn of the history of Oaxaca with great explanations and history.
