Santa Cruz del Quiché

A half-hour north of Chichicastenango lies the provincial capital of Santa Cruz del Quiché, which serves as a base for exploring the area. Quiché, as the town is commonly called, is known for its pretty white church on the east side of the Parque Central. It was built from the stones taken from a Mayan temple destroyed by the Spanish.
