Antigua and the highlands: Walking tour of Antigua

Visit Us

Walking tour of Antigua

Graceful Antigua is without doubt one of the prettiest cities in Central America, and with its cobbled streets and compact historic core it is ideal for exploring on foot.

Your guide will lead you through Antigua’s flower-filled plazas and shaded streets, lined with baroque frontages. Along the way there are visits to a number of the city's most significant churches, convents and historic buildings, where you will learn about the city’s prosperous past.

Antigua’s beautiful surroundings have been both a blessing and a downfall – modern-day visitors may see the glorious views of volcanic peaks and lushly forested foothills as all part of the charm, but devastating natural disasters in the 18th century laid the city low and turned much of its colonial architecture to ruins. Today these picturesque vestiges of Old Antigua sit alongside leafy gardens and lovingly restored buildings, resulting in an architectural mosaic of different eras.

You may also opt to begin the day by travelling to the village of San Antonio Aguas Calientes, 10 minutes' drive from Antigua, famous for its textiles and handicrafts, and enjoy a guided tour of a coffee farm.
