Chichicastenango

Chichi

Sitting in a scenic spot among towering mountains, Chichicastenango has a large indigenous population and displays its cultural heritage in a burst of color when hosting its long-established market. The native market represents one of the main reasons to visit Chichicastenango, with a wealth of traditionally crafted textiles, ornaments, and clothes displayed on bursting stalls on the city's cobblestone streets. The streets get very busy on market days, but during the rest of the week the town's white stucco buildings and red-tiled roofs can be seen and admired, along with a number of local cultural and historical attractions. Chichicastenango is in El Quiche Department. Use our world travel planner: Chichicastenango and all its delights await.
