Walking Among Giants in Antigua Guatemala

Walking Among Giants in Antigua Guatemala BY RUDY GIRON

Rose, a Puerto Rican, walks among giants, gigantes in Spanish, that are found at the La Merced end of Calle del Arco. The photography enthusiasts and I decided to make some environmental portrait as part of our photo walk.

By the way, since we are talking about the Gigantes, which are used in Dances of the Giants or Baile de los Gigantes, below you will find the agenda of activities for The End of the Year Festival at Calle del Arco. Enjoy!
