#16 Chignahuapan, the town of glass spheres

The Christmas Village. A monumental virgin. Streets of many colors. The indigenous influence in the temple. A Moorish kiosk.

Experience

Chignahuapan produce tens of millions of Christmas spheres each year. More than 200 factories and workshops feed these people who spread colorful spheres and other festive decorations on their facades. A walk through this magical town is an encounter with color, with contrasts with joy.

The tour begins at the Plaza de la Constitution, whose garden find the first of the many manifestations of this colorful: the curious Kiosk Mudejar shining sun in blue, red and ocher. Against this, the also unique Parish of Santiago Apóstol (XVI century), with a Baroque façade clearly indigenous manufacturing that will surprise you. The artist drew angels Indian features, surrounded by tropical fruits, with an undeniable sense of irony.

 

We walked three blocks far side streets between wooden houses painted in many colors, to the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. This temple contains within it the largest sculpture of the Virgin of every church in America. With a height exceeding 12 m, the image is certainly striking.

The main shopping streets of Chignahuapan are dedicated to selling areas and other ornaments, the main local industry. Take the opportunity to buy everything you need to decorate your home.

If you want to escape the hustle, go to the Laguna Almoloya, a few blocks from downtown. A perfect place to stroll, relax, and even try your hand at fishing.
