Know More about this tour
Visit Antigua, Guatemala, a town where time stands still. Once the third largest city in all of Spanish Colonial America and for 200 years the capital of Guatemala, it is today a peaceful, beautiful and partially restored colonial city. Cobblestone streets wind through the city of majestic churches and monasteries.
You will be picked up at your hotel in Guatemala city and transferred to Colonial Antigua Guatemala to begin your soft walking tour of Antigua. Youll visit Central Park, Cathedral of Santiago, Arch of Santa Catalina and La Merced Church.
Central Park is located at the heart of the city, surrounded by the traditional grid pattern frequently utilized in Spanish urban planning in the colonies. The park is surrounded by the Palace of the Generals Captain ,the City Hall, the church of San Jos (formerly the Cathedral of Guatemala), the Archbishops Palace and the Portal of Commerce (or the Bakers Portal). Here, visitors will also find the beautiful Mermaids Fountain. The Count of Gomera (Gomera is the word for a rubber plantation) the fountain was built in remembrance of a popular legend, which tells the story of a King whose daughters gave birth but did not want to nurse their children. Learn about this famous story as you immerse yourself in the legendary colonial city.
Next, you will explore the Cathedral which was constructed between 1543 and 1680 with an elaborate baroque faade, typical of antique churches. The Cathedral has smooth columns, a body and a belfry that was rebuilt after the Santa Marta earthquake in 1773. You then proceed to the Arch of Santa Catalina. This institution was established in 1609, and the nuns in this temple and convent were cloistered. The temple was inaugurated on the 15th of September, 1647. In 1694, the construction of the arch was finished and it served as a bridge to connect the convent with the gardens on the other side of the street.
At the end of the tour youll be transferred back to your hotel in Guatemala city.
