Discover the Beauty of Guatemala City

You will be picked up in your hotel in Guatemala City by our tour guide to start our sightseeing tour through the city after a brief summary of what to expect on your way.
First, we will visit Las Americas Avenue, a road with a central garden and several plazas and monuments in honor of the countries of the American continent.
Continue to Berlin Plaza, where there are three pieces of concrete brought from Germany; these are original sections of the Berlin Wall and from here you can view part of the city and the landscape of the volcanoes.
La Reforma was built and inspired by the avenues of France. For this reason, various statues carved in stone, bronze, and marble were brought from Italy.
Yurrita Church is a private chapel of the mixed Baroque style, with Romanesque and Byzantine elements. The church was built as a votive offering by Felipe Yurrita, a native of Arevalo, Castilla, Spain, to the Virgin of Our Lady of Sorrows, patron of that town, for favors received, in particular, for saving her life during the eruption of the volcano Santa Maria.
The Civic Center of the city features a set of buildings constructed between the ’50s and ’60s: The Supreme Court of Justice, the Ministry of Public Finance, City Hall, the Social Security, the Bank of Guatemala, the National Mortgage Bank, and the Guatemalan Tourism Commission.
Arrive at the Major Plaza of the Constitution. This plaza is the heart of the Historic Center of the city. It is surrounded by important monuments such as the National the Metropolitan Cathedral, the Portal of Commerce and Centenarian Park.
