Summary of The Day: "La Nueva Guatemala de la Asunción," or Guatemala City, is political, religious, and cultural center to Guatemala. This metropolis of about 4 million people is home to a unique blend of colonial architecture and modern buildings that, alongside its important museums and historical monuments, offers visitors a unique experience.
After picking you up from the hotel, we'll begin our Guatemala City tour. First we will visit Las Americas Avenue, which is named after the reform drawn in the late nineteenth century, due to the formation of the Organization of American States on April 30th, 1948. The area comprising of the Avenue of the Americas was demarcated in several farms in the early decade of the 50’s with the intention of dedicating land to the American continent.
We will then continue to the Civic Center of the City, a set of buildings constructed between the 50’s and 60’s and includes: the Supreme Court of Justice, the Ministry of Public Finance, City Hall, the Social Security, the Bank of Guatemala, the National Mortgage Bank, and the Guatemalan Tourism Commission. The Bank of Guatemala is decorated with high relief murals by Dagoberto Vasquez describing the history of the country, and also includes a mosaic by Carlos Merida.
Next we continue to the Major Plaza of the Constitution. This Plaza is the heart of the Historic Center of the city. It is surrounded by important monuments such as the National Palace (now the Cultural National Palace and museum), the Metropolitan Cathedral, the Portal of Commerce and Centenarian Park. A few steps away are the National Library, the Periodicals Library and the General Archive of Central America. The tour includes a visit to the Central Market, which is located behind the Metropolitan Cathedral, in the basement of the Tabernacle Plaza. There, visitors can buy a variety of art and handicrafts from all over the country; ceramics, textiles, leather, wood, and silver.
Then we'll continue to Paseo Cayala, 63 acres of land that combines various concepts of housing, dining, shopping, entertainment and business districts. A destination for dining, shopping or entertainment with more than 90 business concepts from cafes, shops and restaurants; a special place to share with a cultural agenda and activities all year round,
The tour concludes at Paseo Cayala and from this point we will make our way back to the hotel. Feel free to stay here as long as you'd like and return to your hotel on your own later on or continue to the hotel.
