The Colonial Comitan, Pueblo Mágico, heir to ancient indigenous settlements, was founded by the Dominicans shortly after the arrival of the Spanish to the Llanos region in the 16th century. The city of Comitán was the cradle of the independence of Chiapas and Central America, and also the place of origin of men and women who have made great contributions to the country's culture, such as the civil hero of Mexico, Belisario Domínguez or Rosario Castellanos, one of the greatest writers in Mexico.
Due to its traditional architecture of houses with roofs and neoclassical, colonial and viceregal touches, its climate, flowery patios, luminous horizons next to Mayan temples and magnificent colonial churches, its elaborate gastronomy and cultural activity, gave it the name of Magic Town, from 2012. This area has unique beauty in the country.
