San Pedro Las Huertas Cathedral

San Pedro las Huetas Church

Since Nuno set the mood for church photos for this Friday, November 3rd, here I do a follow up photo of yesterday’s bell housing at San Pedro Las Huertas Cathedral. Here is another angle of the same church.

Here is a rough and free translation of information I found at EnAntigua.com site about San Pedro las Huertas: According to the writer Francisco Antonio de Fuentes y Guzmán, San Pedro Apóstol, also known as San Pedro Las Huertas, was founded after the flooding of the second City of Santiago in 1541. San Pedro is on the skirts of Volcán de Agua, 1533 meters above sea level, at 2 km South from La Antigua Guatemala and has an estimated population of 1622. The weather is nicely tempered.
