  • If you are in the area in January don't miss the pilgrimage of the black Christ in Esquipulas. This takes about 15 days the most important day is January 15. People come from all the provinces of the Guatemala but also throughout Central America. Outside the beliefs it is a festival of colours and traditional clothing. The Basilica is imposing in the center of the small town surrounded by mountains. Of course you have the merchants of the temple all around...

  • One of the greatest catholic structures in Guatemala. It is one of the most important points to visit in Chiquimula, located at 223 Km from Guatemala City. I can't believe it was restored from the inside, it looks beyond a church, it is an almighty temple.
