Its facade and adjoining museum will both leave you speechless.
A lesson in longevity.
The Church of San Francisco, together with the San José Cathedral, is one of the buildings that make Antigua Guatemala one of the most visited cities in Central America. This building marks the beginning of the Calle de los Pasos, a street that represented the Via Dolorosa and which the faithful would take on important religious days to arrive at mass. Its most characteristic feature? Without a doubt, its fantastic facade that has withstood the passage of time like no other building. Inside, it is still home to the fourteen images that have adorned the church since it was built in the 16th century. When you visit, don't forget the adjoining museum which depicts key historical events in the evangelisation of America, one of the tipping points in the history of this continent.
