santa maria del tule, oaxaca, biggest tree

11 kilometers, the road leading to the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, lies the small town of Santa Maria del Tule. The Zapotec people of the central valleys have a witness to the history of this beautiful place: The tree of Tule.
First impression of this quaint village is a garden next to City Hall and the church. Thegarden itself is a visual delight, is a picture harmoniously decorated beautifully withflowers and plants distributed.

The Tule Tree
A few meters from the plaza, an amorphous figure draws attention: the tree of Tule.As I approach the ancient giant seems to enlarge its trunk. Its common name isAhuehuete or Sabino (Taxodium mucronatum) and has over 200 years old. Quite impressive is its thickness: 58 meters. Is 14.05 meters in diameter and 42 tall.
In its surroundings you can find handicrafts markets in the region, regional food, snow,and the hospitality of the people of Santa Maria El Tule.
