Esquipulas is one of the most important places in the Department of Chiquimula and was settled at the point where
Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala converge. It is an important center of confluence for millions of people who
venerate Cristo Negro.

Esquipulas is also a region that possesses natural attractions and is a zone of historical geological interest that can be
appreciated for its mountainous profile of volcanic origin.

Chiquimula is the cradle of the ch´ortí culture and takes pride in its possession of the traditions strongly rooted in the
myths and legends of the country.
