Details of the Baroque Façade of Ciudad Vieja Cathedral

7th Cathedral of Guatemala

Even though the Ciudad Vieja Cathedral was founded in 1534, it is obvious the church has gone through many renovations. For instance, if you take a closer look at the façade, you can see the baroque architectonic details which were not available until a couple centuries after it was founded. The Virgin of the Immaculate Conception is the patron of Ciudad Vieja and thus it celebrates its town fair on December 8th at the Beginning of the Christmas Season.
