St. Andres Xecul Church, Totonicapan, Guatemala
Located in the small village of Totonicapan, in the Western Highlands of Guatemala, this church looks a lot like the huipils, colorful dresses typical of this region. Its western facade was painted with bright yellow and features around 200 painted sculptures of human figures, monkeys, and fruits as well as more sacred images like angels. Built between 1900 and 1901, it features an idiosyncratic ball-like dome painted in bright blue, pink and yellow. If there was a prize for most colorful church, St. Andres Xecul would probably place among the finalists.
