Casa Antigüeña: The Cupola

Casa Antigüeña: The Cupola

The cúpulas (cupolas) has to be among the most distinctive architectonic elements of the Casa Antigüeña. Originally design as chimney for the kitchen or to provide light and air to a room, nowadays the cúpulas are mainly decorative pieces.

The cupolas break the otherwise flat rooftop line of the La Antigua Guatemala.

Don’t you want to have one these cupolas in your home? I know I do! 😉
