Lage und Freizeit

San Cristóbal de las Casas, also known by its native Tzotzil name, Jovel, is a town and municipality located in the Central Highlands region of the Mexican state of Chiapas. It was the capital of the state until 1892, and is still considered the cultural capital of Chiapas.
The municipality is mostly made up of mountainous terrain, but the city sits in a small valley surrounded by hills. The city’s center maintains its Spanish colonial layout and much of its architecture, with red tile roofs, cobblestone streets and wrought iron balconies often with flowers. Most of the city’s economy is based on commerce, services and tourism.
Tourism is based on the city’s history, culture and indigenous population, although the tourism itself has affected the city, giving it foreign elements. Major landmarks of the city include the Cathedral, the Santo Domingo church with its large open air crafts market and the Casa Na Bolom museum. The municipality has suffered severe deforestation, but it has natural attractions such as caves and rivers.

PROJECT: Over the past fourteen years, the World Heritage Volunteers (WHV) initiative has grown considerably due to the growing interest and appreciation for the protection and preservation of World Heritage sites. For the fourth time, an international volunteer camp will be held in the former convent of San Francisco de Asís in Calpan. Among the objectives are to attract more tourism to the region, complement the development actions of this town, evaluate the tangible and intangible heritage, and highlight the local cultural heritage. Calpan will once again welcome national and international volunteers to carry out awareness-raising activities about the importance of preserving local cultural heritage, supporting the preservation of the former convent. The importance of this complex lies mainly in the façade of the temple, which, together with the four chapels, constitute one of the most notable complexes of the 16th century in Mexico. These chapels, which were built around 1555, display carved stone reliefs of theological scenes. It is considered a jewel of the architecture of the viceroyalty. The four posas chapels were consecrated to the following saints: San Miguel, San Juan Evangelista, La Asunción and San Francisco. All of them present a very similar architectural composition, varying only in their ornamental design of great artistic value and cover. These chapels are an integral part of the historical and cultural wealth of the former convent, and their beauty continues to captivate those who visit them.

The Casa de la Palestina is a unique building in Huaquechula. Built in the eighteenth century, it stands out for its polylobed arches and interior mouldings. It is located right next to the famous Ex Convent of San Martín de Tours. This will be our setting for the conservation, rescue and enhancement project, in which we collaborate with the INAH Puebla Center, the City Council of Huaquechula and the State Secretariat of Culture.
Our mission is to revitalize this historic building to return it to the cultural activities of this town, with the possibility that it will soon house the site museum. With this, we contribute not only to the rescue of the Cultural Heritage, but also to the improvement of the quality of life of the inhabitants of Huaquechula.
This particular workcamp will occur during the celebrations of the Day of the Death. In Huaquechula there is a long tradition of monumental altars and the Casa de la Palestina will be the object of decorations now that it has been enhanced.

THE AQUEDUCT
It is a construction from the s. XVII of 1.5 kilometers of development in which the use of limestone and partition is observed, joined with mortar of slaked lime and river sand, as well as scraps of the same rock. Its formation is, basically, a succession of semicircular arches throughout its development.
This construction belongs to the monumental complex of the Hospital hacienda, where you can still see a large part of its buildings, such as the chacuaco (chimney), some rooms that have ceilings with Catalan vaults and lanterns, magnificent windows with large blacksmith, its perimeter fence and a small chapel.

THE PROJECT
The project to enhance and restore the aqueduct was born from the concern of Cuautla citizens to improve their built cultural heritage. Since the end of 2018, various actions have been carried out with the purpose of highlighting this monument and giving it life through the participation of national and international volunteers. Since 2019, more than 18 actions have been organized in which more than 500 people have participated. The project has also generated the implementation of activities that give life to the aqueduct such as thematic bicycle rides, photographic exhibitions, musical presentations, among others.

LANGUAGE: Spanish is the most common language spoken in Mexico and people in the community do not speak necessarily other language. However, the language in the camp will be the one the group agrees to use. It is usually that the volunteers coming to Mexico want to learn to speak Spanish and this will facilitate the communication environment within the camp. If volunteers do not speak Spanish, it is not a problem but rather an opportunity for everyone.
