This month we celebrate the National Council for the Protection of La Antigua Guatemala 50th anniversary with a number of cultural activities.
Antigua was included in the UNESCO World Heritage Site List during the 3rd Session of the World Heritage Committee at Luxor, Egypt held from October 22 – 26, 1979 as the 65th site.
My first glance of Antigua in 1968 was that of a remarkable city with cordial people and colonial homes. Most of the 30 colonial churches, hospitals and government palaces were in ruins or a bad state of repair as they had not been used much since 1773 when the capital was moved to Guatemala
The most photographed monument in this remarkable city is, without a doubt, the Arch framed with the Agua Volcano or La Merced Church!
Guatemala housed workshops for some of the finest silversmiths in the world!
