Santo Tomas Church (Iglesia de Santo Tomás) Tours

Santo Tomas Church (Iglesia de Santo Tomás)
Built during the 1540s upon the ancient foundation of a Maya temple site,  Santo Tomas Church (Iglesia de Santo Tomás) is a Roman Catholic church in Chichicastenango, Guatemala. It remains a venerated holy site for people of both Catholic and Maya faiths and blends of the two. The stone stairs leading to the gleaming white Dominican church are reminiscent of those at ancient temple sites, and the steps have turned black from prayer sessions in which shamans waft copal incense and set purification fires. Inside, the church is adorned with offerings, everything from maize to liquor, and numerous candles, which have colors and patterns that correspond with those they've been lit for.
Address: East side of the central plaza, Chichicastenango 14006, Guatemala
