"Tegucigalpa Tourist Trap Pueblo Worth Visiting" Santa Lucía by atufft
Santa Lucía Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 18 photos
While, Tegucigalpa was itself originally a Spanish mining town founded in the open woodland areas of central Honduras, further up the hill was founded numerous other villages also dedicated to mining, including Santa Lucia. Fortunately, the need to preserve the water supply for the capital of Tegus resulted in the founding of the El Tigre National Park, the nation's first, and though Santa Lucia is not within its boundaries, it is on the road in that direction and has been preserved as a tourist shrine as well. The unique location in a mountainside, the cobblestone streets, and terra-cotta rooflines with views of the capital, make the 6 mile sojourn up here well worthwhile. Santa Lucia is an escape from the din of the capital city, and has plenty of restaurants and shops.
I found children playing in a patio that overlooked the city, and a labyrinth of confusing colonial cobblestone streets.... more travel advice
