One Day in Antigua, Guatemala: Itinerary to Transform and Travel

From the time you even see the photos of Antigua, Guatemala to the moment when you step foot in the cultural and colonial city, you will fall in love! I know I did!


Antigua was founded in the early 16th century and built about 1,500 meters above sea level in an earthquake prone region. In 1773, parts of the city were destroyed by an earthquake. However, many parts of Antigua remain preserved as ruins. Antigua was one of the first cities in the New World to use a Spanish grid system for its streets. The ancient colonial city was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979.


That's one of the reasons why I decided to spend not just One Day in Antigua or in Guatemala, but about one and a half months! am spending about two weeks in Antigua, Guatemala.
