Public Art in Chichicastenango

Be sure to admire the mural that runs alongside the wall of the town hall on the east side of the plaza – it’s dedicated to the victims of the civil war and tells the story of the war using symbology from the Popol Vuh, the book compiled by members of the Maya nobility soon after the Spanish Conquest.

Another lengthy mural, focusing on village life, fronts the Museo Arqueológico Regional, on the plaza's south side.
