This church is located right next to the central park. The facade is absolutely beautiful and worth checking out if you're in Antigua.

The building is in the city center. Elegant and well preserved. It is recommended to see it illuminated as well.

This is a must see when you travel to Antigua. The exterior is just beautiful and the inside of the church is lovely. There is lots to see in the plaza and area near the church.

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.
