- Every one of these towns has a central park. There are many shops and restaurants around the one is Xela. Yes there is an old(Catholic) church (the oldest in the Americas is in the nearby town of Salcaja. I am in a boutique hotel a few blocks from Central Park so it makes for easy dining options and bars all around the parkWritten March 20, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This church is beautiful on the outside. The Salcajá museum is behind it. To get here, take the Rosario bus from Xela. From the bus stop in Salcajá it's about 6 or 8 blocks to the church.

- It is a beautiful piece of architecture in Quetzaltenango from 1895. Its façade, French type, has big imposing pillars for a magnificent entrace to the events held in it. Inside is divided in several areas for epectators and has a capacity for 1000 visitors. At its exterior there are several monuments to appreciate and at the interior sourranding the theater, several pieces of art. Although, the maintance of the theater has been difficult, there has been a recent restoration by some contributors. Is still on renovation process at the dressing rooms, the stage floor, electrical systems, bathrooms, etc. But is a beautiful visit!Written September 27, 2018
- Beautiful, big city hall in Quetzaltenango. Its construction began in 1812 and was concluded in 1958. With many salons and areas to appreciate. Also beautiful gardens and corridors surrounding the site. Many stories over the years during its construction. Each area has many details in ceilings, floors, steps, corridors, rooms, etc. Although at the second floor, due to the many earthquakes, there are some cracks and damages at the walls, which need to be repaired. Many pieces of art and furnishings. It is a magnificent piece of architecture to visit while in Quetzaltenango.Written October 1, 2018
