Guatemala City Tour

Guatemala City, Guatemala

Guatemala City is the largest and most metropolitan city in Guatemala. It became the capital after Antigua was destroyed by an earthquake in the 18th century, and has continued to remain an economic, political, and cultural powerhouse since its inception.

During this tour you’ll visit some of Guatemala City’s most prominent sights. The tour begins in the Plaza Central, which was constructed in 1778, two years after the city was founded. A number of impressive buildings surround the plaza, including the Palacio Nacional, the National Library, and the Catedral Metropolitana. You’ll explore the Catedral Metropolitana, which was finished in 1868 after some 86 years of construction. Its neoclassical architecture, colonial paintings, and pillared entrance are incredible.

The tour also stops at a spot where you’ll enjoy a panoramic view of the Palacio Nacional de la Cultura and the Civic Center. You’ll also visit a relief map of the city and end the tour at the National Museum of Ethnology and Archeology. This museum has Guatemala’s best collection of Maya archeological artifacts. There are several exhibits that explore the history of Guatemala’s indigenous groups, including their technology, culture, and clothing. Sites to visit: Catedral, Map in Relief, Cívic Center, Residentioal Zone, National Museum of Ethnology and Archeology and the Handicrafts Market in the city
