This town, located on eastern Chiapas, traces its roots to the settlement of a group of Tzeltales Indians; then, in 1528, it was founded by the Dominican monks a short time after the Spaniards’ arrival. Comitan, as it is commonly known, has hosted important historical events. It was the birthplace of Chiapas’ independence movement – the independence act was signed at Santa Maria de Comitan on 1821 – and it is also the birthplace of distinguished men and women, such as the doctor and political scientist Belisario Dominguez, and the prominent poet and novelist Rosario Castellanos.
