    We made a short visit to this town, from San Lucas Tolima. We arrived by car, walk along a road in very good condition, many curves but that is offset by the landscapes that have Lake Atitlan and the volcanoes. Arriving in Santiago, best thing to do is to go to the street of handicrafts, where central park is located. It is very picturesque and sell many handicrafts. You can't miss the church know. From Santiago you can take boat to the other surrounding villages to Lake Atitlan. It is recommended to go with comfortable clothes, sunscreen, insect repellent and your camera. The streets of the village are narrow and it is a little complicated move in vehicle. We would recommend to go early in the morning. We arrived late and not us it was possible to learn more.

    What less I could expect was to find a church from colonial times in the midst of menacing volcanoes and in a seismic zone of scale in good state of conservation. The decor of this place is postcard or film. And inside, the surprise. Décor that reminds us that we are in an area of Mayan settlements. There is a religious syncretism that is worthy of respect. Images of the Saints with their indigenous clothing attract the eye. Worth a watch and pray in the left lateral Chapel. One feels transported to another reality.

    After crossing the market, very colorful and fun. Beautiful objects one can visit the Church nothing special otherwise inside with characters dressed in a surprising way, the cloister is not bad either.
