Casa Antigüeña: The Stairway

Casa Antigüeña: The Stairway

In the Casa Antigüeña you often find stairways or staircases. Quite often you find forged metal handrails beautifully worked by the antigüeño blacksmiths.

Wait a minute Rudy, you’ve had said before that the building codes in La Antigua Guatemala prohibit new two-storey constructions. Oops, that’s right I said that. But, I did not mention at the time that architects are very creative and they figured that they can build a one-storey house with very high ceilings and then they can split some of the height and turn what would be the attic into a loft. Creative, I tell you! These architects always find a way where there is a will. 😉

  • @Coltrane_lives, believe it or not, you are the first person that comments on the new look of La Antigua Guatemala Daily Photo. I am glad at least somebody noticed the new design! 😉

    @Thomas, I guess it does look like the stairway at Doña Luisa.
