Introducing Santa Lucía
Santa Lucía is a charming old Spanish mining town built on a hillside. Cobblestone lanes and walkways wind around the hillside, leading to small colonial-style homes and businesses. The main plaza, with its fountain and landscaped garden, is a nice place to nurse a licuado. On most weekends, Santa Lucía’s restaurants, artesanía shops, and viveros (nurseries) fill up with daytrippers from the capital. Come on a weekday, and it’s a sleepy little village that’s fun to poke around in (except on Mondays, when it’s downright comatose).
