Religious Site Landmark
Walk up the hill to admire the artistry and atmosphere of Catedral de San Cristobal de Las Casas, a brightly colored Catholic church and local landmark. First built in 1528, the cathedral features an 18th-century yellow Baroque facade decoratively striped by red features. While plant motifs in the mortar and sculptures in the niches demand close inspection, the coloration of the church looks pleasing from afar, perfectly complementing the hues of the plaza that lies in front of it. Inside, find a number of Baroque artworks, including two altarpieces.

  • It is rather iconic of San Cristóbal and just in front there is a sit-in, no one knows that but very bad impression...

  • Outside is what is worthwhile, the interior is very careless, not allowed to take pictures with flash
