Antigua is a city in the central highlands of Guatemala, famous for its well-preserved Spanish Mudéjar-influenced Baroque architecture, as well as a number of spectacular ruins of colonial churches. It has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and may be the most outstanding and best-preserved colonial city in Central America. Highlights include the fabulous view from the Hill of the Cross, the lively and colourful market and the city's most emblematic landmark, the Arch of Santa Catalina, to which the Volcán de Agua lends a stunning backdrop. Antigua also enjoys a thriving cultural scene and dispersed throughout the city are many interesting museums, cafes and art galleries.
