Antigua Guatemala is a Unesco World Heritage Site. Founded on March 10, 1543 the Spanish conquistadors founded present-day Antigua, and again, it was named Santiago de los Caballeros. For more than 200 years it served as the seat of the military governor of the Spanish colony of Guatemala, a large region that included almost all of present-day Central America and the southernmost State of Mexico: Chiapas. In 1566 King Felipe II of Spain gave it the title of 'Muy Noble y Muy Leal' ('Very Noble and Very Loyal').
With its cobblestone streets, colonial churches, and many restaurants to choose from, Antigua Guatemala will enchant all of your senses.
