Have you been planning to visit Guatemala? Well, if the answer is yes, please hurry up... Guatemala is such diverse country, filled with rich culture, delicious food and stunning views everywhere you go.

My family and I moved to Antigua about five months and we are loving every single minute here. Antigua is a small city surrounded by volcanoes in southern Guatemala. It’s renowned for its Spanish colonial buildings, many of them restored following a 1773 earthquake that ended Antigua’s 200-year reign as Guatemala’s colonial capital. Notable architectural examples include baroque La Merced, a squat, yellow-and-white church. It’s an integral part of the city’s famous Semana Santa, a holy week with parades and rituals.

The Santa Catalina Arch is one of the distinguishable landmarks in Antigua GuatemalaGuatemala, located on 5th Avenue North. Built in the 17th century, it originally connected the Santa Catalina convent to a school, allowing the cloistered nuns to pass from one building to the other without going out on the street.
