San Cristóbel de las Casas – Mexico

Cathedral, San Cristóbel de las Casas, Mexico

The weather was not kind to us as we wandered the streets of San Cristóbel de las Casas. Situated at 2,300 metres above sea level it was here that the Zapatista uprising began in 1994. The cathedral, which dominates the main square, Plaza 31 de Marzo. Construction of the cathedral began in the 16th century but not completed until the beginning of the 19th century.
