La catedral de Santa Rosa de Copan, Honduras

Santa Rosa de Copan is located in the heart of mountainous western Honduras, near the border with Guatemala.

The history of Santa Rosa de Copan begins in 1765, when the Spanish colonial authorities established the "Real Factorma de Tabaco" (royal tobacco trading post) at what is now Santa Rosa.

Downtown Santa Rosa de Copan features cobblestone streets, restored clay-roofed Spanish-style buildings, and a charming colonial church.
