The Essential
Highly recommended
Antigua, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a dynamic and indisputably charming city. Made the capital by the Spanish, but demoted further to the earthquakes in the 18C, it owes its resurrection to the embellishment of its colonial architecture, which has been almost entirely rebuilt. The emblematic Arch of Santa Catalina is a useful landmark.
