Another Antiguan Ruined Church
Apr 2021
A pretty baroque church that's currently in the state of permanent ruin. It was not open to the public during my visit in April 2021.

Didn’t get the chance to go in as it was closed but got a good photo of this beautiful old church.
Seemingly quite popular for weddings.

Guatemala is well known for its many language schools and this is particularly beautiful setting by the church.

Beautiful relic
Jun 2018 • Solo
If you are into historic architecture (and you better be if you're in this town), this is a lovely place to be. I am attending the Spanish school for 6 weeks nextdoor at Escuela de San José el Viejo. Both the church and the school are fantastic examples of the beautiful Spanish architecture of Antigua. Because the school is adjacent to the church, I've had plenty of opportunities to enter the church. Totally amazing! If you get a chance, run in during a wedding set-up.

Couldn't get in

Found this in a guide book and wanted to check it out. Went twice, and it was closed both times. Looked interesting from the outside.

What a place for a wedding!
Jan 2018 • Couples
Intimate and yet royal. Great place for a wedding and right next door to Porto Hotel Antigua. Very convenient.

Beautiful church ruin

This is in the city and is now used as an event space. I didn't get to go in but it is worth walking by especially at night as it is very nice.

Beautiful church ruin. In a city with many, this is one of the best.
Dec 2017 • Couples
Just a couple of blocks off the city square, it is a beautiful and surprisingly well-preserved ruin. Nice carvings though some have been vandalize, some mosaics left intact. Seems to be a popular place for weddings.

yet another church ruin...
Dec 2017 • Couples
well, this town definitely has a lot of churches and ruins of churches, destroyed during the big 1773 earthquake. so here is yet another one. nothing to enter, just to see from the street. and to visit only if you are passing here anyway.
