    La Merced!
    Cerro de la cruz.
    A while guess, Lions
    Not sure on the last ?

    I miss antigua

    • @Lacpr98, actually that’s not Cerro de la Cruz, which to 500 meters to the left. The architecture style is Spanish Mudéjar-influenced Baroque.

      Don’t miss La Antigua Guatemala any longer, come on down. Cheap flights are available every week now.

      Love your comments and Rudy’s photo.

      • @Luismollinedo, thanks for your kind words.

    • @Leif, that’s so funny, but I believe your guess were mostly incorrect. 😉

    Can’t answer the questions but I love the photo!

    • Good to hear you like the photo.

    The figures look most like lions though they are unique.

    The vantage of the photo appears to be from atop the great stone cross in front of the main entrance to the cathedral but how could that be?

    The architecture is Earthquake Baroque.

    • @Alvis, they’re lions, we had a great discussion about that a while ago. Earthquake Baroque is so funny, but true. I promise I will do an entry about that.
