This is definitely one of the highlights in the city. Mind boggling it was done in the early 1900's to scale without the benefit of modern equipment.

Interesting to see but that's all there is in the area. The place is dirty and tourists get hassled by sellers of a lot of stuff. If you happen to be near, check it out. Otherwise I would not recommend it.

It's a good way to learn a bit of the Geography of Guatemala. It's a huge map and you can check where you've been, it also has a little forest, so it's a nice place to visit
