Antigua Guatemala Travel Guide for Tourists

Antigua Guatemala travel: Antigua Guatemala, or “Ancient Guatemala”, is one of Guatemala's most popular travel destinations.

Antigua, Sacatepéquez, Guatemala. It's lovely to see what this looks like refurbished. When I saw it, it was a bit down at the tooth--gorgeiously grungey.

Antigua: In 1773, the Santa Marta earthquakes destroyed much of the town, which led to the third change in location for the city.[5] The Spanish Crown ordered (1776) the removal of the capital to a safer location, the Valley of the Shrine, where Guatemala City, the modern capital of Guatemala, now stands. This new city did not retain its old name and was christened Nueva Guatemala de la Asunción (New Guatemala of the Assumption) and its patron saint is Our Lady of Assumption.
