Comayagua

This historic colonial town one and a half hours from Tegucigalpa was Honduras’ first capital. It was founded in 1537 and features historic monuments like Central America’s former oldest university, founded in 1632 and now functioning as the Bishop’s Palace; another historic feature is the lovely cathedral in the Parque Central which has the oldest working clock in the Americas in its tower along with some nice colonial artwork. You can visit the cathedral and even climb up the tower to see the clock tick away the hours as it has since the 1500s.

Most of the attractions are located in and around the Parque Central. The streets of Comayagua, unlike many small towns in Honduras, are paved and pleasant.

A nearby military base is home to about 1,000 American soldiers stationed there and you will notice hints of American influence in English on signs among other things.
