Yes, believe it or not there is a Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe church in La Antigua Guatemala. Interesting enough, though, for the Our Lady of Guadalupe celebrations on December 12, Iglesia de La Merced is the main venue where everyone goes and take their children dressed in native Guatemalan garments. Also, the Retablo, Reredo for Our Lady of Guadalupe is housed within the San Francisco El Grande church, the official location of Virgen de Guadalupe. To be honest, I don’t know for what purposes they use this church; does anybody know?
