In order to commemorate the daily activities, customs, ceremonies, and deeply rooted traditions of the people of San Juan La Laguna, a group of painters has painted more than 30 murals throughout San Juan. They created an invaluable series of works, which have made the streets of San Juan La Laguna into an open-air art gallery. Walk around town to find them all.
The most recent works can be explained in a tour of 13 murals, each made with Maya worldview themes to celebrate Oxlajuj Baktun. The Oxlajuj Baktun was a special day in the Mayan calendar that occurred on 21 December 2012. It marked the change in the 5200 year Mayan calendar.
