Catedral de Santiago (Antigua Cathedral) Tours

Catedral de Santiago (Antigua Cathedral)
The stark and silent beauty of the ruins of Catedral de Santiago (Antigua Cathedral) offers visitors one of only a few quiet and contemplative escapes in the 500-year-old city of Antigua. Once a towering homage to religion and faith, this European-inspired white stone wonder was devastated during a massive earthquake in 1717 and never repaired. Today, travelers can explore what remains of this unique structure, whose exterior tells a story of triumph and perseverance. It’s only when visitors pass by the reconstructed façade that they find what can only be described as broken beauty.

Covered hallways and altars now exist under open skies, since ceilings and rooftops that crumbled during natural disasters were never replaced. Delicate white engravings and vast ivory archways are tinged and darkened with dirt after so many years of being exposed to the elements. Visitors can explore the grounds, climb crumbling staircases and bear witness to exquisite views of the church and the charming streets of surrounding Antigua.

Practical Info

The Catedral de Santiago is open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily and admission costs about Q3 per person with an additional fee to photograph. Travelers say it’s worth the extra cost to snap photos of this incredible site.
Address: 2 Av. Norte at 2 Calle Oriente, Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala
