Spanish chronicles narrate that the conquistador of Guatemala informed that during the death of the Quiché prince TECUN UMAN, he was covered with thick green apparel made out of feathers of a bird called QUETZAL, so in honor of his death, this place was named QUETZALTENANGO. This day we will visit surrounding indigenous towns of interest. But we will start with showing you how blown glass is made here in Quetzaltenango.
