What is  “El Tzitz”?

“El Tzitz” is an open kitchen cooking/event space.  

We offer cooking classes and special  events.  The space can also be rented to organize private events.  There are tables for 12 

people, a fully equipped kitchen with 10 additional seating spaces around the stoves and several outdoor spaces.

 

Located in the historical neighborhood of “El Cerillo”, on Avenida Pichucalco 4 A, “El Tzitz” 

is located in a completely renovated old house with wooden floors, fireplaces and beautiful gardens

overlooking the city of San Cristóbal de las Casas.

The house used to be the home of Marcey Jacabson, the photographer, and Janet Marren 

Greenberg, the painter.  They arrived together in San Cristóbal de las Casas from New York 

City in 1956 and made the city their home.
