Begin your walking tour at the mermaid fountain in Antigua’s main plaza. Check out the historic buildings that frame the central square: the Ayuntamiento, or City Hall, and the Captain's General Palace, both known for their many arches. See the impressive ruins of the city’s main cathedral, affected by a series of powerful earthquakes like many of the other historic buildings in Antigua.
Continue on to the elegant grounds of Santo Domingo, a one-time monastery turned luxury hotel and restaurant.
End your tour at a local jade factory, where you learn about the history of this precious stone and its significance in Mayan culture. Your trip concludes back in Antigua’s central square.
