For many, this whitewashed church dating to 1810 holds greater significance than the town’s cathedral because of its prominence as a site for Kekchí religious rituals on altars lining the long staircase leading up to it. Among the themes represented at its different altars are the granting of wishes for love and health, among others.
The inside of the temple is virtually covered with votive candles, while hundreds of corncobs hang from the roof. Outside, there are fantastic views of Cobán  and the rolling green hillsides all around.
To get there, head west from the main plaza up 1a Calle and then north two blocks on 7a Avenida. You’ll see the long, winding staircase heading up to the temple.
