Beautiful cathedral

The Cathedral of Guatemala City was founded on July 27, 1524 and is located in Central Park. At that time, the city was called Santiago de los Caballeros and the country's capital was Antigua Guatemala. But after several earthquakes, the decision was made to move the capital and religious center to the city of Guatemala. The cathedral barely lasted 20 years and was destroyed by a mudslide. Bishop Francisco Marroquín, who also founded the Cathedral of Quetzaltenango, wrote about how beautiful it was, but it was a temporary beauty. Guatemala City's patron saint is the Virgin of the Assumption, and the city festival on the 15th of August features beautiful processions.
