About this activity
We depart from the terminal in an AC bus, driving on an expressway enjoying the farms and the landscape of the country side. We then stop for picture taking opportunities to see the volcano's dry Lava Rivers. Antigua, the capital of the Captaincy-General of Guatemala, was founded in the early 16th century. Built 1,500 m above sea-level, in an earthquake-prone region. It was largely destroyed by an earthquake in 1773 but its principal monuments are still preserved as ruins. The space built on a grid pattern inspired by the Italian Renaissance acquired a number of superb monuments. "La Azotea" Cultural Center, is a cultural center and museum complex, located in the township and municipality of Jocotenango , with three separate museums, on the grounds of a coffee-growing estate. The center contains a coffee museum, which illustrates the history of processing and marketing Coffee production in Guatemala, the Mayan Music Museum, also known as Casa K'ojomwhich houses Mayan musical instruments from pre-Columbian times, and the Rincon de Sacatepquez Museum which has items related to traditional Guatemalan dress.
