Zona 1

Zone 1 was the first area to be inhabited when Guatemala City was first built. Most of the city’s government offices and electricity and telephone companies have been based here at one time or another. However, as the city grew outwards and other zones came into being, many of these offices and companies left the area. Zone 1 declined somewhat and instead became occupied with street sellers and lower class housing projects. The local council has managed to recover the district to a degree and there are considerable efforts to regenerate what is now known as the Centro Histórico. Heightened security and rejuvenation of the colonial style buildings have attracted commercial activity back and it is now filled with restaurants, bars, hotels, museums, theatres and shops. It is home to most of the city’s most popular churches and museums including the Metropolitan Cathedral, Santo Domingo, Calvary, la Merced, San Francisco, the National History Museum, Casa Mima and Museo de Ferrocarril. You will also find the National Library and newspaper archive at the heart of Zone 1.

Other neighborhoods in Guatemala City: Zona 9, Zona 13, Zona 4 and Zona 10.
