Ermita de la Santa Cruz Ruins

Ermita de la Santa Cruz Ruins, originally uploaded by rudygiron.

On June 29th I posted a photo of Charly Garcí­a on concert in Antigua Guatemala. Well, then I mentioned that Antigua is used as natural venue for concerts, jazz festivals, classical music recitals. The venue they use most often for concerts is La Ermita de la Santa Cruz ruins. Santa Cruz ruins sit on the outskirts of Antigua, on the east side, against a very densely tree-populated mountain.

A few months back there was a historic concert by Guatemala’s most famous rock band Alux Nahual who recently reunited for series of fund-raising concert for the victims of Hurricane Stan (unbelievable, it is already on Wikipedia). I did not go to this first concert, but I was told it was incredible. Because of previous commitments, I was unable to attend, but I was a few blocks away and I still can sensed the greatness of the concert and felt the energy that emanated from the Santa Cruz ruins.
