“A beautiful sight as you look to the Volcan de Agua”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

The Arco de Sta. Catalina is a Landmark in Antigua. It frames the Volcan de Agua beautifully. There are charming artists painting all along the street where the Arco is located.

“The Arch”

A great landmark of this beautiful city. The arch was one of the most picturesque places in town and it framed the volcano in a perfect way!
