Theme Day: Tranquility

Tranquility at Parque Central of Antigua Guatemala by Rudy Girón

It is neither wealth nor splendor; but tranquility and occupation which give you happiness. —Thomas Jefferson

As most firsts of the month AntiguaDailyPhoto is participating on the theme day organized by the DailyPhoto community on the first of june. Tranquility is the theme selected for June 2012. Take a quick and quiet tour around the world to look at the tranquil scenes being shared by other DailyPhoto cities.

As opposed to other large metropolitan cities like London, Paris or Sydney, Antigua Guatemala could be considered an enchanting and tranquil little town with its hundreds of fountains everywhere, it only takes a few steps to find a quiet and secluded spot to listen to the relaxing murmurs of a fountain, fuente as we say in Spanish. Even at the main fountain, Fuente de las Sirenas, at the main square, Plaza Mayor, one can find tranquility through the day.

What’s your favorite relaxing spot in Antigua Guatemala?

  • A gorgeous fountain. I can feel the coolness from here. I would love to visit to find a favourite place or two, one day!

    totally cool

    • Hi Gerald, thanks for stopping by. I will do the same as soon as I scrap a few minutes for this unforgiven agenda.

    El calvario y belen.

    • For me is the park right across La Escuela de Cristo or a secluded corner in la Cooperación Española.

    Pues, if I tell everyone, then my favorite spot will no longer be tranquil.  However, one of my favorites is the little park across the street from the house of Hermano Pedro de Betancourt.  Sitting on the benches in front of the statue of Hermano Pedro, sipping a licuado, or munching on whatever snack the ladies nearby have made, THAT’S tranquility.  : )

    • Yes, this park is also a very good choice, very airy, peaceful and relaxing, except for the sound of the falling leaves or the tweeting of a few birds.

  • Valladolid Daily Photo

    I can almost hear the sound of falling water. Well done, take care!

    • I am sure ValladolidDP you would enjoy spending an afternoon around this fountain. I have not visited your blog in a little while; I must remedy that. Thanks for stopping by.
