Iglesia del Carmen Antigua Guatemala

Iglesia del Carmen Ruins in Antigua

This ruined church is called Iglesia del Carmen and it resides in Antigua, Guatemala. It was wrecked by a major earthquake in the 1700′s. During the day, street vendors line up in front of the church to sell crafts to tourists. I took this photo at sunrise while some of them were setting up early.

    You’ll have to ask your mother, she may have remembered the earthquake.

    I LOVED Antigua. I know exactly where this pic was taken. My hotel was right across the street!

    Cool pic. Is that the volcano you climbed up in the background?

    • http://expertvagabond.com Matthew Karsten

      Nope, that’s a different one called Agua. There are volcanoes all over the place here in Guatemala!

    Yep, I walked by that church all the time while in Antigua. Great lighting. Getting excited about heading down there again. Wait a week or so before you check out my site. It’s pretty ugly, as in primitive, right now. btw, what happened to Honduras? Cheers!

      Honduras is next! So much to see in Guatemala, I decided to stay a bit longer. The 3 weeks of Spanish classes I took cut into my travel time…

    Can’t say as I blame you Matt. I love Guatemala. For a people who have gotten the short end of the stick for millenia. they are by and large warm, open, engaging and heart-felt.

    Love this pic! I love taking pics in Gaute where the volcano is in the background. It just adds to the photo.
