6 reviews of Cerrito del Carmen

A family outing

El Cerrito del Carmen is located on 1st Street and 12th Avenue of area 1. This is the city's oldest church and it was built by an Italian hermit in 1620, named Juan Corzo. The hill is located in the valley of the cows, or the Ermita Valley. The city is currently renovating the church, and is leaving it as a family place, with gardens and playgrounds. The entire hill is guarded by the town's police. I also visited Tecpan, the first capital of Guatemala, where there are the Iximche ruins of the ethnic Kaqchiquel. It is located 86 kilometres from Guatemala and the indigenous people still make religious offerings.
