Typical Rooftop Vistas from Antigua Guatemala

Typical Rooftop Vistas from Antigua Guatemala by Rudy Giron

Pots and flowers are so typical of the rooftop terraces of Antigua Guatemala, present as often as you cupolas. Chayes are also found often. Chaye is the Guatemalan slang for broken glass. Lots of chayes are installed on top walls to discourage people who like to “borrow” the belongings of other people without asking. Follow the white rabbit to look at a very a good photograph of what chaye is.

Do you know what ruins are shown in the background of this picture?
