The Church of San Andrés Xecul is Not Your Typical Façade by Rudy Girón

The yellow church in San Andrés Xecul is one of the most famous sites in Guatemala and certainly one of the most photographed. Dating back to mid 17th century, the range of colors used on the facade of the church is said to have come from the vivid tipico dress of the area, embroidered with a plethora of saturated colors. If you come to visit Xela, it is just a short bus ride out of the city to see this fabulous church and completely worth it!

I don’t know if he was cold or comfortable or ashamed of sleeping there. Was it his choice or did he have to choose this? I don’t know. And I can’t be judgemental in this case. I just know that Xela is a beautiful city to live in many different ways. But the reality is not only about beauty. Difficulties go hand in hand with beauties, I guess…
