Iximche

Panajachel
#1 of 31 Sights & Landmarks in Western Highlands
And there's plenty to see here: a small museum, the ruins of temples, plazas, and ball courts, as well as an area used by modern-day indigenous people for sacred rites.
Iximche is also easily accessible from Antigua/Guatemala City/Quetzaltenango, so if you're only visiting this area, you should definitely take a day trip to visit this site!
