Iglesia de la Merced - Other Activity Antigua - Guatemala

A good site to visit if you have a spare 10 minutes, La Merced stands out from other Antigua churches for its impressive bright yellow and white latticed facade. Inside is basic by comparison. For less than a dollar you can also enter the peaceful ruined cloisters next door, with a pretty tiered fountain and upstairs, views of the surrounding mountains. Mosaics, made from recycled magazines by inmates of a local prison are for sale in the courtyard. Try to go on the weekend when, between 4 and 8 p.m., the park outside fills up with locals and tourists alike, all snacking on cheap and tasty street food.
