“History and Music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

A landmark in Guatemala city, this beautiful building once housed the post office for the city. Now the building is the home of the Municipal Music School, part of el Sistema de Orquestas de Guatemala, and one of the best symphony orchestras in the country. A must see!

“Historic center at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2007

Before it used to be the main stage for receiving and sending letters to all the country, since this was the only way of staying in touch with others.

Now is a beautiful building in 12 calle downtown, that if you have the oportunity to go inside you'll feel amazed by its jade floors and caracol stairs, just perfect for a clasical picture.

So, go inside the "Historical Center" and discover the classical spanish style we have and all the hidden jewels we have downtown Guatemala city.

Good travelling!!!
