This is the actual plaque, in which, chiseled over a piece of stone you can read the UNESCO’s declaration of Patrimony of Humanity of La Antigua Guatemala. The UNESCO’s declaration of Patrimony of Humanity No. 65 was bestowed upon La Antigua Guatemala in 1979.
Two important things to notice are that the official names are La Antigua Guatemala and Santiago de Guatemala. Boy, I received lots of disparaging comments for an article I wrote in Revue Magazine entitled: This is no Caribbean Island, which in turn was re-adaptation from the AntiguaDailyPhoto entry: What’s in a name? That which we call La Antigua Guatemala in which I explained why the official name of the city is La Antigua Guatemala and not Antigua nor Antigua Guatemala.
Can you guys tell me where can this UNESCO declaration plaque can be found?
