Panoramic View from Antigua Guatemala

Panoramic View from Antigua Guatemala

There is really not much to say about the panoramic view of La Antigua Guatemala you see above.

Except, perhaps, I can explain that the Volcán de Agua (Water Volcano) is on the left and it was responsible for burying the second Capital of Central America; thus the Santiago de los Caballeros de Goethemala (now La Antigua Guatemala) was moved to its present location. Volcán de Fuego (Fire Volcano) is on the right and it is currently active and provides us with wonderful fireworks, constant tremors and seismic activity as well as growls and roars. Volcán de Acatenango shows a fraction of one of its two craters. Last but not least, the small colonial town you see in the foreground is La Antigua Guatemala, top travel destination. That’s it, that’s the only things I can say about this panoramic photograph from Antigua.

What are you waiting for to visit? 😉

  • Great panoramic! Quick question. What’s the new rule/law re: parking in Antigua. I understand there’s a charge to park now. If so, how’s it administered? Does it include the market area?

    Also, apart from Pizza y Queso (which is fab) where else can you get a decent bite to eat that won’t break the bank?

    best,

  • Rudy, many thanks for all the restaurant tips and recommendations. Can’t wait to try ‘em. They will certainly make a change to my normal fodder of Big Macs and Burger King. Looking forward to knowing more about the new parking charges in Antigua and how to avoid them – Best, Matt
