Magic is in the background of Antigua
El Arco de Santa Catalina is the symbol of Antigua. Constructed in the year 1649 for the nuns of the Convent of Mercy Nuetra, it was reconstructed along with the clock tower in the 19th century after the earthquakes before. One can not leave Antigua without going through this Arc many times without photograph as many. Its charm lies in something indescribable: the mixture of red ocher and the backdrop-2 volcanoes-the lights at night, the cobblestone street. It is a symbol of the city of Antigua: you can have a thousand reasons to like Antigua, but the magic is in the background of all of them.
