Situated in the City Centre of Guatemala City, this is the place where practically the modern city of Guatemala City ends. Surrounded by impressive structures like the The Metropolitan Cathedral and Palacio Nacional, you could easily spend quite some time here. At the time we were here, they were preparing for Christmas and the area was wonderfully decorated. We even witnessed a dance programme (free of cost) by the descendants of the Mayans.
There are plenty of food and souvenir stalls over here and they are cheap. But be warned, this isn't a safe place as two of the locals asked me to put my camera inside the bag and not to keep it on my shoulder. Another person warned me about the extensive pickpocketing here.

This is an interesting plaza surrounded by many fascinating buildings. It's a good place to have a seat and people watch.

We didn't stay in Guatemala City long after landing, however, got a little tour in the car. This plaza is among the larger ones you will see in Latin America. It is not as decorated or landscaped as some, but is impressive due to its sheer size.

Established in 1776, the year of the outbreak of the war of Independence of the United States, this square has been called Plaza de Armas, which is natural for Latin America and Parque Central. Over the years the square has seen a lot of the terrible earthquake, demonstrations, military coups and terrorist attacks. But the day we visited we saw on the square a lot of pigeons and dirt, But there is a huge flag and the Metropolitan Cathedral. Near the Cathedral is the national Palace (Palacio nacional) built in 1943. Next to it the ranks of booksellers. The metro station Parque Centenario is on the opposite side of the Cathedral. Here's a she - the main square of the country.
