"The Palacio de los capitanes..." Antigua Guatemala Favorite Tip by la_beba

Antigua Guatemala General: 48 reviews and 55 photos


Favorite thing: The Palacio de los capitanes generales or Capitanía General it's an impotent work of art from the XVI Century and it was home for governors of Guatemala. It has an amazing gallery and its wide arches show all of its colonial architectural value. It resisted both the earthquakes, though it was necessary to reinforce its structure. Nowadays it's place of administrative and government offices.
