Tecpán Guatemala Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 9 photos

Tecpan it´s a predominantly indian town (Kackchikel) of the highlands. In 1524 Pedro de Alvarado founded the villa of Santiago de los Caballeros, the first capital of Guatemala here. The capital was moved later to Ciudad Vieja. It´s a town of no interest besides a colonial church, but you have to cross it if you are visiting Iximche.
