Welcome to Masatepe


Towering over Masatepe’s attractive central plaza, Iglesia San Juan Bautista is home to El Cristo Negro de La Santísima Trinidad, whose feast days mean a month of parties between mid-May and mid-June, and features nationally famous folkloric dances like La Nueva Milpa, Racimo de Sacuanjoche and Masatepetl. The sweeping adobe makes a fine colonial centerpiece, but it’s the views from its gates, of fuming Volcán Masaya, that add depth to your prayers.
