Iglesia y Convento de la Recoleccion - Historical Building Antigua - Guatemala

If you choose one ruin to visit in Antigua, choose this one. Formerly a church, this massive set of ruins is probably the most impressive in town. Inaugurated in 1717, it survived just half a century before being ripped apart by the earthquake of 1773.


Most walls, a beautiful archway entrance, and a staircase (to nowhere) still stand. Huge chunks of roof and walls lay scattered all around the site.
