We stayed 6 days in Antiqua and did a lot of walking around the town. We came across the park on one of our tours the day before Christmas. There weren’t very many people there that day but those who were in the park, wore masks and there were a couple of municipal police officers walking around. We felt very safe. We went back on Christmas Day and the park and surrounding businesses were bustling with families playing, talking and eating together. Everyone was wearing a mask only removing them to eat or drink. What a wonderful atmosphere and beautiful, family culture.

At the old town of "Santiago de los Caballeros" (the actual "Antigua"), the Spanish conquerors built, as they traditionally did in Spain itself and throughout the Americas, a central square. Here, it is known as "Parque Central", or "Plaza Mayor", a major gathering point and focus of social life for its inhabitants and visitors. At its center, the beautiful "Fuente de las Sirenas" ("Fountain of the Mermaids", in English). At its sides, superb colonial structures, such as the "Catedral de San José" (sided by the ruins of the old "Catedral Primada de Santiago de los Caballeros"), the "Palacio Real de los Capitanes Generales" (the former headquarters of the Spanish government for all Central America), the "Palacio del Ayuntamiento" (the City Hall), the "Portal de las Panaderas" (with historic buildings and old houses) and the "Museo de Santiago de los Caballeros" (the local museum). It is impossible to miss "Parque Central" at any visit to Antigua. Famous "Arco de Santa Catalina" and the impressive "Iglesia de la Merced" are just a few steps away. Enjoy!

The Parque central is the best please to chill with your friends, in the afternoons the park is a little full but personality I like more at night, at night the are no merchant, there is no a lot people, probably you would see group of friends singing, playing music, or just laughing. The best time to go is on Christmas cause the park is decorated with lights it is wonderful to see. Other days to go is on Saturdays and Sundays because there is a group of music that goes and play a wonderful instrumental music.

This plaza is central to the city and its historic heart. It is the sort of place folk just go and sit. Good place to watch the world, and the locals
