Went to the church this past weekend when there was a live band and a Christmas tree light show. The locals had their kids out way late and it was a nice festival spirit. There were vendors everywhere selling food but some of the carts looked a little dicey. Recommend going at least once to see this beautiful old building but make sure your wallet is in your front pocket!

The climb up the narrow staircase within the belfry is a treat in itself. Although you do not need to be fit, you do need some basic agility to do so. Stairway is narrow and in some places, the roof is rather low. But the sight of this simple piece of machinery is inspiring. The views are spectacular. Make sure you bring your camera!

This lovely old building has been restored very well. a nice interior garden gives the building a pleasant feel. This building housed the presidential office, the congress and even the supreme court in the early days of Honduras as an independent country!

Living all my life in Honduras it was until this year, at my 43 years that I visited Comayagua in viernes santo. On late thursday noon the artists prepared the area where they would work probably for the entire night. On friday we woke up at 5am to get to see them do the final touch to their piece of art. We got near the Cathedral were the longest carpet was still in progress, it was so long at least two dozen young adults were working with the bright colored sawdust that characterizes the carpets. As we walked down the street we could see at least ten more being finished. The best one I saw is the carpet designed by the family who began this tradition in 1963, a very long carpet full of color with at least 5 religious scenes. The cherry on top of the pie was when we were invited to work on a very simple one, my husband and I were thrilled and so were my 12 and 7 yr old daughters. We carefully use different colors of sawdust to fill spaces of a two meter long stencil to simulate a grapevine. I truly recommend this attraction that unfortunately just happens once a year.

The monument to the 1812 constitution is located a block or so south of the Cathedral and the main plaza, along Avenida 2da. It's not particularly well-labeled, which might be fitting for a constitution that didn't last very long. It does commemorate the early stirrings of the independence movement in Central America, and so it's of modest historical interest.

There is a balsa wood reconstruction of the town which is the only exibit. You might duck in here to escape the rain
