Antigua Guatemala Is A Ghost Town

Shadows and Light in Antigua by Rudy Girón

Since Eric mentioned the fantasmas (ghosts) in the comments of San Agustín Ruins by Night, I figure I ought to share a ghost evoking image as a follow up.

La Antigua Guatemala is famous for being a town with many ghosts. I don’t know when La Antigua Guatemala became known for its ghosts and aparecidos, but I am sure it was sometime when its name was Santiago de Guatemala. Many people swear to have seen La Llorona (weeping lady), La Siguanaba, El Sombrerón and other such Guatemalan legendary characters.

Would you like me to do a series on the ghost and Guatemalan legendary characters?
