What to Expect
Antigua, Guatemala, was at one time the third-largest city in Spanish colonial America and for 200 years the capital of Guatemala. Today it is a lovely, partially restored spot with cobblestone streets that wind through a city of majestic churches and monasteries.

For this full-day tour you’ll be picked up at your hotel and head out of Antigua to visit surrounding villages, including the weaving village of San Antonio Aguas Calientes, San Miguel Dueñas, where you’ll visit a macadamia plantation, Ciudad Vieja, and San Juan del Obispo.

Take a break for lunch before beginning your walking tour of Antigua.

Central Park is located at the heart of the city, surrounded by the traditional grid pattern of streets frequently used in Spanish urban planning in the colonies. You’ll see the Palace of the Captain Generals, City Hall, the Church of San José, the Archbishop’s Palace, and the Portal of Commerce.

In addition your guide will show you the Mermaid’s Fountain. The Count of Gomera built the fountain to memorialize a popular legend about 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 colonial history of the city.

Next, you’ll take a tour of the cathedral that was built between 1543 and 1680, and features an elaborate Baroque façade in mortar, typical of antique churches. Its belfry was rebuilt after the Santa Marta earthquake in 1773.

Continue on to the Santa Catalina Arch, on which construction began in 1609. From 1694, when the arch was completed, it served as a bridge to connect the convent with the gardens on the other side of the street.

At end of the tour, you’ll be transferred back to your hotel.
