Founded in the early 16th century, Antigua, Guatemala, was largely destroyed in 1793 by an earthquake. Its principal monuments can still be seen as ruins.
This colorful colonial city is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is hard to match the beauty of Antigua. Its ancient ruins, gorgeous architecture, cobblestone streets and colorful houses are surrounded by towering volcanoes. The most impressive of these is El Fuego, “the fire,” the most active volcano in Central America.
