The beauty of the abandonment found in Antigua Guatemala

The beauty of the abandonment found in Antigua Guatemala by Rudy Giron

If there ever it was a place where abandonment looks great that would be La Antigua Guatemala, a city taken out of 1773 which is only possible today because it was abandoned, or rather people were forced to abandon it.

Anyways, most of the ruins and old monasteries still look abandoned, with cracks, broken arches, fallen down cupolas, rusted metal works, chipped paint layers, et cetera. Basically, at least half of the city looks like is in ruins and it is, but that’s precisely appealing architectonic aesthetics of La Antigua Guatemala, don’t you agree?

What other details would you list as part of the architectonic aesthetics of the abandonment of Antigua Guatemala?
