The City of La Antigua Guatemala, seat of the Captaincy General of Guatemala, was founded at the beginning of the 16th century. 
Built 1,500 meters high in an area of seismic shocks, it was largely destroyed by a
earthquake in 1773. Rebuilt in a large part, La Antigua Guatemala, came to possess in less than three 
centuries a great number of superb monuments and majestic churches.

La Antigua Guatemala is a magical city full of mysticism and history. Viewing photos or videos can give you a
very good idea of what you are going to find, but when you walk its streets, talk to its people, try its gastronomy
and breathe its air, you will find the reality of what this small and mysterious city awaits for everyone.

Come to know La Antigua Guatemala!
