Comayagua

The colonial city of Comayagua has become a national and international draw for tourism, and is on the list of The 30 Wonders of Honduras. Each week Comayagua receives almost 200 travelers interested in its colonial heritage. It’s a fairly large city right along the main highway between San Pedro Sula and Tegucigalpa.

Comayagua, which means “desert of abundant water”, was the capital of the province of Honduras during the colonial era. Its architecture, bursting with tiled roofs and Spanish churches, is a reflection of ancestry and tradition. The jewel of these structures is the Church of the Immaculate Conception (known as the “cathedral”), with its gold coated altars and one of the oldest clocks in America, dating from 1100 AD.
