Reconstruction of a centenary city: Antigua Guatemala


Buildings in Antigua Guatemala are beautiful examples of the colonial architecture. They keep the rich of history inside their walls. However, by pass of time they suffered the consequences of natural phenomenon and most of them got damaged. This increased the desire of people to rebuild them.

There are some documents wrote by foreign and religious people who visited the city in the years of 1800 and 1841 in which they describe a city in bad state. It was until 1850 and 1855 when some buildings got rebuild. Some examples are the Palace of the General Captains and the Cathedral.
