Maximón Shire of Zunil

Maximón is one of the most venerated Mayan deities of the Highlands.

The different versions of his existence go back hundreds of years and even before colonial times. In the town of Zunil, Quetzaltenango, the shire moves every year to a different house where a new Cofradia will be in charge and have the honor of maintaining the shire.
