Church of Chichicastenango

Chichicastenango is a village in Quiche in Guatemala. Its population are the Quiche Maya and the language is called quiche too. The village church, which also has a lively and famous market on Thursdays and Sundays, is a mix between the traditional Catholic church and the holy Mayan places. As Guatemalans, at the time of colonization, were not entitled to have multiple gods, they began to go to church, but to worship their gods and spirits. The figure of the Virgin or Jesus is their god. The tradition lives on. On the steps of the church incense is sold. It will burn inside the church, with candles that are placed on the ground.
