What To Expect
Greet your guide at your Antigua accommodation to begin exploring the charming city. As you walk towards Parque Central — the city’s green lung — you’ll receive an introduction to Antigua’s colonial history.
At Parque Central, you’ll behold a plethora of impressive landmarks; gaze at the elaborate architecture of Palacio de las Capitanes Generales, Palacio del Ayuntamiento and the Mermaid’s Fountain, a structure that represents the legend of a king whose daughter refused to nurse their children.
Next, head inside the beautiful La Merced Cathedral — whose grand Baroque façade was constructed in the 16th-centruy — and admire the elaborate belfry, smooth columns and glittering altarpiece.
Conclude your tour with a visit to the Santa Catalina Arch, one of Antigua’s most famous structures, and admire the dramatic backdrop of the Agua volcano. Your tour ends with drop-off back at your Antigua hotel.
