With a bilingual guide travel back to the Colonial era by visiting Antigua, a charming town and former Guatemalan capital. The numerous Baroque buildings reflect the past grandeur of the one-time third largest city in the Spanish Colonies.
Upon arriving in Antigua Guatemala, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, begin your walking tour on the cobblestone streets and pass by Central Park, Saint Joseph Cathedral, and the Arch of Santa Catalina. Follow your guide to the splendidly decorated La Merced Church, a masterpiece of Baroque architecture.
Another impressive sight is Saint Joseph Cathedral (Catedral de San José), located next to Central Park, with its Baroque architectural style. Built in 1680, it was partially destroyed by 2 earthquakes in 1717 and 1773. Take a photo by the Fountain of Sirens, built by the Count of Gomera in remembrance of a popular legend. Antigua's charming scenery is completed by 3 imposing volcanoes in the background and the highest is the almost 12,500-foot (3,810-m) Volcano of Water (Volcán de Agua).
