Yes, the front of the building is beautiful and there are municipal offices and a library contained there, but the greatest thing is the tour of the back of the building. The cathedral has been only partially restored and the arches and carvings really should be seen to get a true appreciation of the history of this landmark. Pay the... More

Bordering the northern parts of Plaza Central Park, this attraction is easy to find. It has the Municipalidad, Museo de Libro de Antigua and Museo de Santiago according to the Antigua map that I have.

Historical marker in the center of Antigua. An interesting location for night photography as well with wide angle lens, bring a tripod and wide angle lens for long exposures.

This is one of the many buildings you can view from the plaza. It's the great thing about the plaza. You can walk around it full circle and see all the historical buildings in Antiqua.

Wander upstairs to the balcony to take better pics of the town square. Use the arch as a frame to capture a photo of the volcano and cathedral. Picnic lunch upstairs on one of the benches, and enjoy the view without any crowds.

Located on the north side of the Plaza (Parque Central) you can get a good view of the Cathedral de Santiago to the east of the park and Volcan de Agua to the south. The Jade Factory and Museum is a half block to the east. There is a nice place for coffee on the northwest corner of Ayuntamiento where... More
