San Cristóbal de las Casas located in the Central Highlands region of Chiapas and is still considered the cultural capital of this state of Mexico. The city sits in a small valley surrounded by hills at height 2100m. Major landmarks of the city include Zocalo, the Cathedral, the Santo Domingo Iglesia and many other churches.
I spent there two days in January of 2011 in my trip around Mexico.

    Beautiful sunset! The market with traditional, colourful textiles sounds to be a nice place to go shopping at.

    Sergey, fantastic page with outstanding photos of San Cristobal. Your hotel looks indeed comfortable and the La Chimenea Restaurant seems to be well worth a visit. Well done.

      Thank you Holger for visiting my page. Yes, I have never been in such places before and was impressed very my much by nature and local customs (as well as by the hotel and its restaurant).
