Antigua Churches”

Vis­it­ing Antigua is like step­ping into a time-machine that takes you back over 300 years.  This city is dec­o­rated with remark­able old build­ings.  It is curi­ous to find so many reli­gious build­ings between such short dis­tances from one another, but there is a dif­fer­ence in each one of them.  Antigua has a wide vari­ety of them.  Antigua used to be the main city of Cen­tral Amer­ica at one point in his­tory and it is now the most impor­tant tourist cen­ter in Guatemala.  It was founded by the Span­ish in the 16th cen­tury and served as the cap­i­tal city of Cen­tral Amer­ica for over two cen­turies.  That is why the region’s archi­tec­ture has a Euro­pean style from the colo­nial times.  You def­i­nitely don’t want to miss the amaz­ing churches in Antigua, many of them had been dam­aged because of the seis­mic activ­ity of the region that is reg­u­larly rocked by earth­quakes because it is located in between three vol­ca­noes: Fuego, Agua, and Acatenango.
