Welcome to Chajul


Chajul was the base for one of the main guerrilla groups during the civil war, and was consequently the site of many bloody reprisals by the army against the Ixil people. More than two decades later, the scars of the conflict still run deep.

Chajul has a notable church famous for one of the biggest pilgrimages in Guatemala during Lent. The town is also known for its woven grass baskets, which make great souvenirs.
