Fountain in a Alley in Antigua Guatemala

Rudy Giron: &emdash; Fountain in a Alley in Antigua Guatemala

Here’s your Spanish word for the day: Callejón or alley.

In Antigua Guatemala a callejón is an even narrower street, usually not very long, sometimes one to three blocks. There are callejones through out Antigua Guatemala, but the most popular one are quite possibly those north of La Merced church. This fountain is located on the narrow alley between 6a and 7a avenida norte. Believe it or not, I have never seen it before, so I don’t know if it is a new addition to the callejón or simply I didn’t pay attention before.

What’s your favourite callejón from Antigua Guatemala and why?

    Callejón de La Quinta.
    It should be 11 Calle Oriente, to help visitors locate it.
    Favorite because that’s where my mother’s house is. Doesn’t have a búcaro but other nice details, during the “Rescue our Sidewalks” program we got sidewalks, mini-sidewalks, so narrow that only children or pets fit on them, no parking allowed so it always looks clean.

    • Where is 11 calle oriente, Güito, do you mean 1a calle oriente?

    Ala verdad este es mi favorito. When in Guate I use it regularly to get from my apartment to the lavanderia.

    • Yeah, I forgot there is a lavandería right on this callejón.
