It is the most important square of Guatemala and heart of Old Town. You can find there several beautiful historical buildings: Cathedral Metropolitana, Palazio Nacional and many others.

The main plaza is always something good to check out in Latin America. As far as plazas go, this one is fine, not great. It's pretty to see the cathedral and the national palace. We went on a Sunday so there were lots of vendors...More
