Surrounded by impressive volcanoes (Agua, Acatenango and Fuego), Antigua is one of the most
beautiful colonial cities in the world.

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979, the Spanish colonial architecture is impressive and
present in all of  it's enchanting churches, monasteries and private homes. The cobblestone streets
are lined with cafes, restaurants and shops adding to the charming and colorful nature of this
magnificent city.

Antigua is famous for its ruins, churches and traditional crafts like ceramics, silver and jade jewelery,
wooden sculptures, woven textiles and more.

If you visit Antigua during Semana Santa (Easter week) you will witness some of the most impressive
processions in the world as well as the elaborate Alfombras (carpets) made out of colored sawdust,
pine needles and flowers.

Another attraction are the Coffee tours where you can get a glimpse into the process of Guatemala's
world renown coffee.

Spanish language schools, some of the best and most affordable in Latin America are another great
reason to come experience Antigua and go home having learned another language while on vacation.
