Dove Meeting in La Iglesia de La Merced

Doves in Iglesia de la Merced

I can still hear the rumors of the doves’ chat while at their meeting in a late afternoon at Iglesia de La Merced in La Antigua Guatemala. Since La Merced Church is one of the landmarks for La Antigua is visited often by tourists and chosen by many Guatemalan and foreigners as their wedding chapel. I dedicate this entry to my good friend Manolo who has a special history with this church.

Have a nice weekend everyone!

    When we stayed in La Antigua, we stayed at a hotel a few blocks from La Merced and we visited it several times. Beautiful church. I do recall it was in January (our first night in LAG) and there must have been a festival commemorating a saint or two because the fireworks and explosions went on through the night…I slept very little and kept waking to thoughts that I must be in some type of urban battlefield. It was quite humorous actually. I think my wife purchased several rosaries from this church too.

    Pues sí… mi mente esta tan retorcida como el bello estilo barroco de la Merced de La Antigua… sorry but no way of translating that at this time of the night (10 to midnight)… and I could say something about what I think about doves as well (rats with wings) but I will just say : THANK YOU RUDY FOR THE DEDICATION. 🙂
