UNESCO JEWELS: Antigua Guatemala Half Day Tour from Guatemala City

5 Hours

Price Breakdown:


Antigua Guatemala, 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 by our driver and transfer to Antigua Guatemala to meet our local guide to begin your walking of approximately 3 hours.

La Merced Church of Guatemalan Ultra-baroque style, this temple has two bell towers. On the facade of the church, in its upper part is a sculpture of San Pedro Nolasco, founder of the Mercedarian Order.

Santa Catalina Arch, built to connect the nuns between cloisters to avoid being seen due to the votes that the religious who belonged to that Order took. After the earthquakes of 1773, the arch became important due to the arrangements that were made. These arrangements included the construction of a turret and the inclusion of a Lamy Amp Lacroix watch of French origin.

Then we head to Central Park. The park is surrounded by the Palace of the General Captains, the Town Hall, the Cathedral of San Jose and the Trade Portal.
Here in the park, we will also find the Las Sirenas fountain. This fountain has a traditional where the Count of La Gomera ordered to build the fountain in memory of his daughters.

On our way we will visit the La Unión tank, which is one of the most representative laundries in this city, only the big houses had a place where they could be washed. For this reason, most of the inhabitants - housewives - went to public laundries. This was inaugurated on February 3, 1853.

At the end of the tour you’ll be transferred back to your hotel in Guatemala City by our driver.
