San Cristóbal de las Casas is a place doubly special, since it is a Magical Town with a city’s character.
It is one of the first cities to be built in Spanish North America.
Founded in 1528, this Magical Town has retained and preserved the architecture of its colonial era.
This can be appreciated in the style of its buildings which are, to this day, in excellent shape: churches, museums, markets, and little streets.
This and more make San Cristóbal de las Casas a colorful living specimen of history and deep-rooted culture.
Harmonious urban compositions are displayed in its imposing religious buildings, like its cathedral, or the Temple of Santo Domingo, decorated with intricate baroque details and the touch of indigenous influences, solidifying the cultural heritage of the tzotzil, tzeltal y lacandon peoples, who neighbor this picturesque town.
