Welcome to Chiantla


Also in the church are some interesting murals painted in the 1950s, showing local Maya having miraculous experiences while working in the silver mines.

Another 4km on from Chiantla, El Mirador Juan Diéguez Olaverri overlooks Huehuetenango from a point up in the Cuchumatanes. On a clear day it offers a great view of the entire region and many volcanoes. Mounted on plaques here is the poem, A Los Cuchumatanes, penned by the lookout point's namesake. Local kids will recite it to you for a tip.
