Description

"La Nueva Guatemala de la Asuncion," the name of the city of the Republic, is also the center of negotiations, religion, and cultural activities. This metropolis of about 4 million people has a panoramic contrast between colonial architecture and modern buildings. With its important museums and historical monuments, this city offers visitors a unique experience.

The tour will begin at your hotel, where your guide will pick you up for a tour of Guatemala City. First, we will visit Las Americas Avenue, which is named after the Reform drawn in the late nineteenth century due to the formation of the Organization of American States on April 30, 1948. The area comprising the Avenue of the Americas was demarcated in several farms in the early decade of the 50s with the intention of dedicating places to the American continent.

We will then continue to the Civic Center of the City, a set of buildings constructed between the 50s and 60s and includes the following: the Supreme Court of Justice, Ministry of Public Finance, City Hall, Social Security, Bank of Guatemala, National Mortgage Bank, and Guatemalan Tourism Commission. The Bank of Guatemala is decorated with high relief murals by Dagoberto Vasquez that describe the history of the country and also includes a mosaic by Carlos Merida.

Next, we will continue to the Major Plaza of the Constitution. This plaza is the heart of the historic center of the city. It is surrounded by important monuments such as the National Palace (now the Cultural National Palace and museum), the Metropolitan Cathedral, the Portal of Commerce, and Centenarian Park. A few steps away are the National Library, the Periodicals Library, and the General Archive of Central America.

The tour includes a visit to the Central Market, which is located behind the Metropolitan Cathedral, in the basement of the Tabernacle Plaza. There, visitors can buy a variety of art and handicrafts from all over the country; ceramics, textiles, leather, wood, and silver.

At the end of the tour, we will transfer back to your hotel.
