Valley of Angels

This little Honduran mountain town is a sweet escape. The town, with its cobblestone streets and bright colored houses surrounded by a protected forest, has earned its name Valle de Ángeles (Valley of Angels).

Once a 16th century Spanish colonial mining town, Valle de Ángeles is now a community rich with art of various forms. The town serves as a weekend getaway for residents of Honduras’ capital city; people climb the winding mountain road from Tegucigalpa to Valle to trade in city life for a slower pace. There are a few main cobblestone streets filled artisan shops and cafe restaurants. Many cafes overlook Parque Central, which is home to a central plaza and historic catholic church.
