This half-day sightseeing tour from Guatemala City makes it possible to visit on even the shortest of time frames—squeeze it into a long layover or make the most of a quick trip without skimping on any of the sights.

In 1538, the first Dominican friars of the "Orden de Predicadores de Santo Domingo de Guzmán" arrived in the "Capitanía General de Guatemala", establishing the "Iglesia y Convento de Santo Domingo". It was one of the most important Roman Catholic convents of the Americas in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. The baroque two-towered building with fantastic ten bells, filled with rich objects and holy relics, was destroyed by the earthquakes of 1773. Its ruins remained abandoned for many years. Centuries later, they were somehow restored and house, today, an awesome complex of museums. Through the ancient walls, brick archways, old crypts and tile corridors, the treasures of "Casa Santo Domingo" are on display: pre-Columbian Mayan art, ceramics, religious objects, silver and glass wares, old pharmacy articles ... plus paintings, sculptures, colonial furniture and archaelogical findings. Art and history. Unmissable! Enjoy!

Important not only for it’s a historical role in the construction and Life of the city, but important because it is one of the largest archaeological complexes open to the public. Expansive ruins with fairly good labeling Allow one to appreciate this edifice. But what makes this a really amazing places the way in which it has been adapted to a high-end hotel, which assists in its preservation and that generates lots of cash for the economy. Add to that A top-flight restaurant with beautiful seating, and some of the most impressive art galleries with art for sale to the public that you will find in the city. Dozens of wonderful photogenic settings available. A must see.

Very nice grounds to walk with the old ruins tied into the new hotel. Museum is very nice. Worth the effort to see. There are apparently tunnels as well but we didn't have time to see them.

We particularly enjoyed an exhibit that featured Mayan artworks next to newer objects where there was a pretty clear influence.
