ARCHITECTURE & MUSEUMS


San Cristobal is a classic Spanish Colonial town with a lively and celebrated Indigenous heart. It is a city of cobblestone lanes, red tile roofs, opulent churches and small tree-filled plazas. Long, straight streets ramble up and down several rolling hills that spread outward from the city's main plaza. It is actually a series of traditional barrios (neighborhoods) that trace their roots to the old custom of trades, candle makers, blacksmiths, carpenters and fireworks makers giving each barrio a special magic in a colorful quilt-like quality. Good views of the colonial city are had from two hills in the city center; Cerro San Cristobal and Cerro Guadalupe with a small Spanish colonial church waiting for those who venture to climb the hundreds of steps to reach the top. The city's cool mountain air (altitude is nearly 7,000 feet / 2,100 meters) is invigorating and refreshing.
