Highlights of a Free Tour in Antigua

Founded in 1543, Antigua was for a long time the capital of Guatemala. Despite having suffered many earthquakes, today this small town is still full of colorful houses, monasteries, churches and palaces. Therefore, no trip through Central America would be complete without a several-day stopover in this magical city. Free Tours in Antigua are the perfect way to learn about the city’s 500 years of history with a local guide. The great symbol synonymous with Antigua is the Santa Catalina Arch, which in the past allowed nuns to move between buildings without being seen or stepping into the streets. Next to it is the baroque jewel of the city: the Merced Church, with a striking yellow facade. In addition, visitors can’t miss the Palace of the General Captains, the Plaza Mayor, the Jade Museum, the Old Cathedral of Guatemala, the museum of the University of San Carlos and the Holy Route of Brother Pedro.

Things to Do in Antigua

Antigua is the first tourist destination in Guatemala due to the beauty of its monuments, but also thanks to the safety of its streets (especially compared to Guatemala City). Also, Antigua has become a great place to learn Spanish. Many foreign students flock here to take advantage of its many excellent and cheap language schools. Cooking courses are another essential activity on any visit to Antigua. And, of course, outdoor enthusiasts can’t pass up the opportunity to visit the nearby volcanoes. From the city, tourists can enjoy the view of Agua, Fuego and Acatenango volcanoes. Also, travelers can climb the Pacaya volcano as long as they hire a certified guide. Finally, tourists will have fun exploring the colorful local markets with Antigua Free Walking Tours. They provide a great opportunity to learn about the local handicrafts: fabrics, ceramics, silver and gold jewelry, candles, typical sweets and other gastronomic products.
