San Antonio Sacatepequez is in the department of San Marcos, but it is the border town with Quetzaltenango. This past weekend, there was celebrations for the day of San Antonio. Yesterday, on the last day of the fiestas, I had a short day trip to this small border town. Like many other saints’ days, there was a big, gorgeous church service and at the end of it, a street party. Of course, hundreds of people had filled the church in this town with their prayers and hymns, that sound beautiful to an outsider.
Because I am a big fan of huilpiles, I was definitely attracted to the pretty designs, which are concentrated on flowers, that this small town has.
What makes San Antonio interesting is that you can make a wish to find your significant other in life with a coin donation. And yes, I made my donation, too. Let’s see how it goes.
