The aesthetic of abandonment

The aesthetics of abandonment by Rudy Girón

If there ever it was a place where abandonment looks good that would be La Antigua Guatemala, which by the way is city taken out of 1773 and it is possible today because it was abandoned, or rather people were forced to abandon it.

Anyways, most of the ruins and old monasteries still looked abandoned, with cracks, broken arches, fallen down cupolas, rusted metalworks, chipped paint layers, et cetera. Basically, half the city looks like is in ruins and it is, but that’s precisely appealing architectonic aesthetics of La Antigua Guatemala, don’t you agree?

What other details would list as part of the architectonic aesthetics of abandonment of Antigua Guatemala?
