Antigua Guatemala is located in the south of this Central American country. Antigua Guatemala is a city in the central highlands of Guatemala famous for its Colonial Architecture (well-preserved Spanish Baroque influenced architecture) as well as a number of spectacular ruins of colonial churches. There are 3 World Heritage sites declared by UNESCO in Guatemala.

Key contemporary buildings in the city can be visited externally on our Guatemala Architecture Tours.

Guatemala Walking Tours

Guatemala Architecture Tours tend to focus on the major new buildings in the city but some groups prefer a mix of old and new. We can also accommodate requests on our Guatemala walking tours, such as visits to specific buildings types eg interiors or housing, and trips to certain parts of the city rather than an overall visit.
