Overview

La Galeria celebrates the arts as a whole and provides at the same time a center for local and international artists. We sell a vast range of art work at attractive prices, rare and fine art pieces for collectors as well as unique frames of our own design. The building, a piece of art in itself is located in the heart of Panajachel. Since 1973 we also organize community events, concerts, theatre, cabaret, art movies etc. Our additional show of unique folk art began in the 1920s and continues to this day. Come by for an excellent cup of cappuccino or espresso and get inspired.House recommendations: Cappuccino -

I bought a painting each time I came here 25 years ago and again his time. Tomas and Sabina are just very nice people. They are supportive of the artists of the area. This is a very amazing place to visit.

Once you enter La Galeria as part of an interestingly styled house the noise and stress of Panachachel redraws and you feel the ambiance of art and relaxation. You can study (and buy) the wonderful masterpieces of Mayan and European artists. Prints at affordable prices...More
