Walk through the streets of this civic, yet religious city that combines pre-Hispanic and Spanish cultures. Experience the wonder of encountering the Mudejar-style architecture.

Explore the chapels of San Jacinto or El Calvario, which houses a magnificent Renaissance altarpiece carved from wood, depicting the theme of the Crucifixion. Delight in the exquisite Chiapas cuisine at small restaurants across the city.

Visit the Former Convent of Santo Domingo, home of the La Laca Museum. Be amazed by the traditional lacquer technique with which its artisans create a flash of brightly colored flowers on black, white or otherwise colorful backgrounds. Find objects made on jícaras, pumpkins, trunks or trays that will lend your home a touch of distinction. 


Discover the mysterious Parachicos masks of sculpted wood and headdresses with monteras, vividly colored sarapes, splendidly embroidered shawls and hats with colored ribbons, all worn for the traditional Fiesta Grande held every year at the end of January. Join the dances that the Parachicos consider a collective offering to the saints they worship.
