Welcome to Chichicastenango
Chichicastenango is a town in the Guatemalan highlands, northwest of Guatemala City. It’s known for its open-air craft market and indigenous Maya culture. The 16th-century Santo Tomás Apóstol Church has long been used for both for Catholic worship and Maya rituals. Nearby, the Rossbach Archaeological Museum displays pre-Hispanic and colonial artifacts. The Maya shrine of Pascual Abaj sits on a hilltop to the south.
