Experience the stunning beauty of Chichicastenango and its surrounding countryside. Explore the weekly market which attracts local craftsmen from throughout the region!
Chichicastenango, surrounded by valleys with mountains scattering the horizon, is isolated from time, space and the rest of Guatemala. With its narrow cobblestone streets and red-tiled roofs, this magic town is a place worth visiting. Check out the beautiful cathedral, Rossbach museum, a mask factory, and Pascual Abaj. Every Thursday and Sunday the Chichicastenango market hosts local craftsmen from the entire region come to sell their goods. Shamanistic and other ceremonials can be found in the market stalls. During the Sunday market you may see the Cofradias (Mayan religious brotherhoods) who often hold precessions in and around Santo Tomás church.
8:00 am – 7:00 pm on Thursdays and Sundays only.
