Highlights of San Cristobal de las Casas
Described as a town with an indigenous heart, San Cristobal de las Casas lies in the state of Chiapas, Mexico. It is a highland town. Full of houses flanking narrow streets with a main square, typical of many northern Mexico towns.
The centre price of this Mexican town is La Catedral de San Cristobal de Las Casas. More a church than a cathedral. The area comes alive at night time when the area becomes an open air textile market place. A chance for the indigenous people to sell their cloth and wares. The church was closed in 2016 because of an earthquake and has since been under repair.
Building on the history of the textile industry in the region, why not visit the Centro de Textiles del Mundo Maya. This museum hosts different cloths from the different ethnic groups in the area. Indeed they are displayed by region. In addition there are clothed mannequins and drawers of different textiles representing that region.
Another centre to look out for is Steps in San Cristobal. A free story teller will take you through the local customs, traditions and beliefs. For good measure, the guide often finishes off with some folklore and legends. Apart from story telling, the centre also offers cooking classes. Learn how to make tortillas and quesadillas as well as local indigenous cuisine. All the donations go to the indigenous children in the community.
A Danish archaeologist and his Swiss photographer wife founded a home here in 1950. They dedicated their lives to preserving the environment and the promotion of sustainable development.
