Founded on August 4, 1543, Coban is the capital of Alta Verapaz district. Situated on 1,320 m (4,330 ft), and with around 100 thousand inhabitants, it is a very pleasant place, with nature resembling a bit to some parts of Europe. That is the secret of a strong German presence in this area since immigrants found Coban to be alike to the landscapes they were used to.
