San Francisco El Grande Church - Historical Building Antigua - Guatemala

For church and ruin addicts, beautiful San Francisco El Grande is a must. Those who aren’t fans of crumbling stone can relax on the grassy slopes among the ruins. Chill out with a book or picnic with the kids. There is a museum dedicated to Saint Hermano Pedro and his tomb rests in a private chapel. Sundays and religious festivals are the best days to browse the stalls selling devotional goods
