On the East side of Ciudad de Guatemala's important "Plaza Mayor de la Constitución", the very heart of its historical center, you will find this impressive construction. This the "Santa Iglesia Catedral Basílica Metropolitana de Santiago de Guatemala", previously known as "Catedral Primada de Centro América". It was built between 1782 and 1815, and was rebuilt on many occasions due to the several earthquakes that have struck the country along the years. It was built following the characteristics of the baroque and neo classical architectural styles, with a surprisingly "simple" interior. It is devoted to the cult of "Santiago El Mayor", the Patron Saint of Guatemala. Unmissable while in Ciudad de Guatemala! Enjoy!

This is very solemn and historic place of worship, even if you're not a Catholic, historically speaking a great place to visit, do not forget to visit the Infantes museum next door, one on the first Catholic schools in Guatemala if not the first, nice and interesting relics from late 1700's

We took Uber to walk around Zone 1 of Guatemala City from our hotel (Westin). The Metropolitan Cathedral is in the Central Park. It is a large cathedral but not very decorated.

This is a lovely building of worship that is worth some time to visit, contemplate and ponder the meaning of life! Not much chance it could be built today.

The Cathedral Metropolitan Basilica of Santiago de Guatemala or Metropolitan Cathedral, is the main church of Guatemala City and of the Archdiocese of Guatemala. It is located at the Parque Central in the center of the city. We found its exterior and interior mundane and nothing impressive architecturally. Besides its blue dome nothing is memorable.
