Consecutive Day 3640 — El Carmen Ruins

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; El Carmen Ruins in Antigua Guatemala

La Ruinas de El Carmen in Antigua Guatemala are a magnificent example of baroque colonial architecture. Even in it’s decay and abandoned state, the ruins of El Carmen are quite impressive. The best time to visit is very early in the morning when the light from the east is bathing the architecture, thus making every detail even more three dimensional. On the weekends you can even find a handicraft market set out on the streets in from of the ruins. Share with us your best photo of the El Carmen ruins in the comments.

    You forgot to give the adress where to find it.

    • Well, Antigua Guatemala is so small and there are hundreds of maps everywhere, that’s why I don’t give addresses unless it’s a difficult place to find. This is not the case with El Carmen ruins, which are one block east-north from the main square, corner of 3a calle oriente and 3a avenida norte.
