Important part of the city
The Guatemala City officially recognized its Historic Center in 1998 and began to restore this important part of the city that had been neglected over the years. Today, it's a beautiful meeting point for local Guatemalans to eat, shop, and enjoy their days off. Most of the buildings in the historic center were built in the late nineteenth century and today historic colonial buildings stand side by side with modern establishments like galleries and cultural centers. You can't miss when you're in town!
