Antigua Guatemala, founded in 1543, was the seat of Spanish colonial government for the Kingdom of Guatemala, ultimately grew into the most important city in Central America, filled with monumental buildings of ornate Spanish colonial architecture. By 1773, in addition to the cathedral and government palace the city could boast of over 30 churches, 18 convents and monasteries, 15 hermitages, 10 chapels, the University of San Carlos, five hospitals, an orphanage, fountains and parks, and municipal water and sewer systems. According to many authors, Antigua Guatemala in its heyday, with a population of perhaps 60,000, was surpassed in the New World only by Mexico City and Lima.

La Antigua, was repeatedly damaged by earthquakes, and always the AntigueƱos rebuilt, bigger and better. But on July 29, 1773, the day of Santa Marta, earthquakes wrought such destruction that the capital city was moved to safer grounds, which led to the founding in 1776 of present-day Guatemala City. Antigua was left to rusticate, largely but never completely abandoned. Today its monumental bougainvillea-draped ruins, and its preserved and carefully restored Spanish colonial public buildings and private mansions give form to a city of charm and romance unequaled in the Americas. In 1979 UNESCO recognized Antigua Guatemala as a Cultural Heritage of Mankind site. In 2009, it recieved the title of "Top City" from the "Annual Wanderlust Awards" in whcih 600 cities around the world participated.
Colonial architecture and modern construction in colonial style is found throughout Antigua in mansions and in humbler homes. Wandering along the cobbled streets one passes by numerous heavy wooden double doors studded with large brass or iron bosses. Some buildings featured corner posts of stone matching the stonework of their portals that served a decorative purpose while at the same time protecting the building from damage when struck by passing carts or carriages. The walls of colonial homes were built thick, partly in the vain hope of surviving earthquakes, and accordingly window openings must be deep, giving the opportunity for artistic expression in deeply molded fenestration.
Modern day Antigua Guatemala, is filled with tradition, specially in Holy week, tourist attractions, plus a wide variety of restaurants and entertainment. Come for the history, stay for the experience!
