Historical Center

Tonalá

The jewel of the Historic Center of Tonalá, Chiapas, is the Templo de San Francisco de Asís (Temple of Saint Francis of Assisi) which has witnessed the development of this city, the third most important for the state's economy.

The construction of this temple began at the end of the 18th century and in its interior, you can appreciate a golden altarpiece that is preserved in perfect condition. The ornate details of this piece contrast with the simplicity of the architecture of the building that has witnessed the history of the city.

Do not leave out of your itinerary a walk through the Parque Esperanza (Esperanza Park) where you will find a pre-Hispanic monolith in which you will be able to appreciate a series of Teotihuacan style engravings. Parque Matamoros (Matamoros Park) is also an obligatory stop, as is the Casa de la Cultura (House of Culture).
