Oaxaca offers two pedestrian-only streets and a pedestrian-only plaza around the zocalo.
 Oaxaca's Sidewalk Cafés  line the Zocalo giving it  a unique ambiance.  The pedestrian streets encourage walking, band concerts, social gatherings, and  the occasional political demonstration.
Visitors from the surrounding villages dress in embroidered finery and hand-spun wool when they  gather  in the city plaza to celebrate the ancient rituals that they have combined with the Christian celebrations introduced by the Spanish.
