Antigua, Guatemala’s Colonial Gem

Saint Joseph Cathedral in Antigua

Today, the enchanting town of Antigua is a UNESCO World Heritage site, inhabited by 35,000 people. Known for its outstanding colonial architecture, colorfully painted stucco houses, shops and galleries, nearly everything of interest is within a 10 by 10 block grid in the town. The best way to see it is to roam the cobblestone streets at your own pace, meandering past historic churches and monuments. You can also take a taxi — most taxis in town are the three-wheeled Bajaj vehicles made in India called tuk-tuks.

Soca River

When Earnest Hemingway reached the Italian front in 1918, the Italian army’s wounds were still fresh from the disastrous loss the previous autumn at Caporetto, which saw 40,000 troops killed and wounded, plus another 280,000 captured.
