Antigua’s Church of Santa Lucí­a


Church and stars, originally uploaded by rudygiron.

There are about 12 churches, colonial nonetheless, in Antigua and today it occurred to me that, except for the Cathedral, I have not posted a single church photo. Now, I am not the type of person that visit churches very often, but if you have visited Antigua before, you could ask yourself; how did he manage to post 29 photos of Antigua and only one has a church in it? It is almost impossible to walk for 10 minutes in Antigua and not come across a church. As a matter of fact, the one time of the year when Antigua is flooded with tourists, locals and foreigners, is Lent and Holy Week (Cuaresma and Semana Santa in Spanish). People all over the world are attracted to the churches, processions, and live representation of the Passion of Christ.

Here are more photos of churches in Antigua via Guate360 for now. I have made promise to post at least one photo of every single church in Antigua for June.
