European Charm of San Cristobal de las Casas

Located in the state of Chiapas, Mexico, San Cristobal de las Casas is located in a remote jungle setting that has an altitude of 6890 ft. Due to its high altitude, among other reasons, much of San Cristobal de las Casas' indigenous inhabitants have largely been unbothered and have been able to keep to their traditional ways. In this sense, it's full of culture that makes it very unique and a preferred colonial city among European visitors. Must see places include: San Cristobal's Cathedral, Tienda de los Artesanos de Chiapas, Ex-convento de Santo Domingo, and Templo de San Cristobal.
