Iglesia de Santiago Apóstol

Iglesia de Santiago Apóstol Review

The main road leads to the squat white 1547 Iglesia de Santiago Apostol, the church dedicated to town patron, St. James the Apostle, but where Tzutuhil deities can be seen in the woodwork around the pulpit. Fondly remembered onetime American parish priest Father Stanley Rother was assassinated in the church rectory by right-wing death squads in 1981 for his outspoken support of the Tzutuhil cause.
