Thursday Doors: Tuxtla Chico’s Santa Maria Candelaria

April 1, 2017

In the town of Tuxtla Chico, Mexico, near the Guatemalan border, we visited the main church, which is in the Zócalo, or Central Square. The colorful main entrance is unique and beautiful in its simplicity.

  1. Great colors everywhere, but although the surrounding part of the church wall is simple, the doors and their immediate surroundings certainly aren’t. But even their ornateness is simple and not busy, if that makes sense. 🙂 It’s uniquely beautiful.
