  Maya's against the Spanish Chess Game
by filipdebont

Poncho Plaza and the nearby street (Calle Sucre) were also the ideal place to buy some gifts or local souvenirs. While wandering around in the narrow streets of Otavalo, my eyes catched a beautiful and colourful item.

It was a very beautiful Chess Game. And the most beautiful were the figures; it was not white against black. Och, No, It was the Maya’s against the Spanish.

What to buy: A Colourful Chess Game, with the figures which showed the Maya's on one hand, and on the other hand the Spanish.

Address: Poncho Plaza, and Calle Sucre
Theme: Local Craft
