Wood carving workshops

Santa Catarina Juquila

Explore the art of faith

Juquila shines with its enormous culture. Everywhere you look you will see an endless number of carved wooden figures, each with its own meaning and honoring its deity.

A very prosperous Magical Town thanks to its devotion. Here workshops are held to work wood and turn it into figures, especially virgins that go through a process of care and worship before being finished and exhibited.

A task behind which there is an enormous tradition that the men and women, in charge of these new workshops, keep with great respect.

One of the stories that surround this practice is that on one occasion a wooden virgin was the only piece that survived a fire. Since then a miracle has grown in the folklore of the region.

The residents of Juquila love to share their cultural wealth with visitors, giving them the opportunity to participate in workshops, working and dressing the Virgin with different accessories that have a special meaning.
