Alameda El Calvario

Alameda El Calvario by Rudy Girón

There only three alamedas (tree-lined streets) in La Antigua Guatemala. Alamedas are public walkway or promenade shaded with trees; from álamo ‘cottonwood’ + -eda ‘grove’. The alamedas in Antigua Guatemala are Alameda Santa Rosa, Alameda El Calvario and Alameda Santa Lucía.

Have you taken a stroll through Alameda El Calvario yet?

Sólo hay tres alamedas en La Antigua Guatemala, las cuales ya aparecen en la traza original de la ciudad. Las alamedas son El Calvario, San Rosa y Santa Lucía; ésta última también conocida como calzada a pesar que el rótulo al inicio de la Alameda Santa Lucía la declara como alameda.

    I have….and it amazed me that it took so long for me to find it. Seemed so far away from the Plaza Mayor, but I had the place almost to myself.
    Nice shot, Rudy. It looks just as beautiful at night !
