Arches at the Compañí­a de Jesús Building in Antigua Guatemala

The Compañí­a de Jesús Building has to be one of my favorites building in La Antigua Guatemala. It is beautifully restored with so many gorgeous details like arches, wood floors, wood arches and columns, fountain, gardens. The Compañí­a de Jesús Building is under the care of Cooperación Española NGO, Agencia Española de Cooperación Internacional in Spanish, which converted the building into a cultural center and library. On Wednesdays at 7 p.m. they show Spanish films. The library is among the few that allows to check out the materials there. In the atrium of the Compañí­a de Jesús Church Ruins are presented every month classical, jazz and world music recitals as well as all kind of cultural activities. Almost all the activities are free. How could I not love this building; I get my cultural fix here.

I feel I have not done justice to the beauty of this building through the photos presented thus far. I promise I will make the time to go there one afternoon and really take better photographs. Stay tune!

Theme Side Note: Tomorrow La Antigua Guatemala Daily Photo will be participating in the Theme Day of the Daily Photo City community (over 250 cities around the world).
