    Lanquín, one of the tribes conquered by a group of friars, among them: Fray Pedro Angulo, Fray Luis de cancer and Mr. Rodrigo de la cerda, was based on the year of 1540. Between 1540 and 1550, its first catholic Church was built, the one that was founded with the name of San Agustin.

    Originally, this church was made up of ranch straws but later on it catching fire and resulting in a large sum of deaths led to its reconstruction in 1574.This was however possible after a set of Spanish rules and regulations were agreed upon. In 1810, a significant portion of the building was lost to an earthquake after which the current civil market is found on the debris and foundation of what was a piece of the Church.

    By presidential agreement of May of the year 1956, Lanquín by its natural beauties and that constitute one of the greater tourist attractions of the country, was declared NATIONAL PARK. In 1970 Lanquín was declared NATIONAL MONUMENT (artistic, tourist. etc.) and in 1997 by presidential agreement was declared CULTURAL PATRIMONY.

      Natural Monument Sempuc Champey San Agustín Lanquín, Guatemala
    • Semuc Champey
      Semuc Champey is a Natural Monument located near Lanquin in Guatemala. The park is a steep valley of lush forest with a large rushing river at the bottom. At the throat of the valley the river dives into an underground cave and at the bottom of the valley the river gushes back out. In the center of the valley lay a series of calm, dripping turquoise pools. The roof of the cave creates the pools of Semuc Champey.

      Upon entering the park you can go either strait to the pools, or to Mirador, a high look out point. The hike is steep but the view shows the entire valley with the turquoise pools. You can walk to the top of the valley to see where the river dives into the cave, then swim in the pools themselves.
