Comayagua

Description

Comayagua (Spanish pronunciation: [komaˈʝaɣwa]) is a city in Honduras, some 80 kilometres (50 miles) northwest of Tegucigalpa on the highway to San Pedro Sula and 594 metres (1,949 feet) above sea level.
The accelerated growth experienced by the city of Comayagua led the municipal authorities to structure a territorial reorganization plan. Between the years of 1945 -1975 the population of the city quadrupled due to the high rate of population growth achieved at that time (4.8%) and to migratory movements in the interior of the country. In 2015 the estimated population was 152,051. It is the capital of the Comayagua department of Honduras and it is noted for its wealth of Spanish Colonial architecture. The central square has a cathedral with the oldest clock in the Americas.
