Was disappointed because it was under construction but still such a beautiful site to see! Bucket list item for sure!

Must see and cannot avoid seeing the famous arch built to protect the nuns from being seen crossing the street in the 1700's.

Santa Catalina Arch is a most popular landmark in Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala, located on 5th Avenue North, with the back drop of the volcano.

The arch is an iconic landmark in Antigua, and one I passed under many times during my stay in the city. If the sky is clear, it is possible to get a great photograph of the arch with the volcano in the background. A beautiful sight. It is a particularly pleasant area to wander around at weekends when the road is closed off to traffic. There are some great shops and restaurants nearby and the atmosphere is buzzing.

Pretty colonial arch on 5th avenue, close to the main plaza. The street is full of cafes, restaurants, and shops catering to tourists.

El Arco de Santa Catalina es uno de los puntos más conocidos de Antigua, sobre todo por haber sido declarado Patrimonio de la Humanidad por la UNESCO.
El arco fue construido en el siglo XVIII para que las monjas del convento pudiesen pasar de una zona a otra sin tener que bajar a la calle.

El arco de Santa Catalina está ubicado en el centro de la ciudad de La Antigua, muy cerca de la plaza principal.
En la misma calle encontrarás varios restaurantes y tiendas. Aunque es una de las zonas más masificadas destaca por su belleza.
