One of the four nuns still living there will guide your visit of the Archbishop's Palace, built during the 16th century, and once the residence of Bishop Francisco Marroquín, whose name the University honors.
Next stop will be Ciudad Vieja, in the Valle de Almolonga, the second capital of the kingdom of Guatemala, which was destroyed by a mudslide in 1541. Guided visit of the first cathedral of Guatemala.
Close by is San Antonio Aguas Calientes, famous for its beautiful textiles. The textiles are the finest in Guatemala. The huipiles (women's pull-on dresses) made in the village are best known for their tight two-faced weave that produces an identical image on the front and back.
