Trip Planner: Central America / Guatemala / Sacatepequez Department / Antigua / Arco de Santa Catalina
An iconic landmark, Arco de Santa Catalina represents the only portion of the once-flourishing Convent of St. Catherine that's left standing. Built in 1694, the arch spans a street and was used by nuns to cross from one building to another without being seen on the street. The bright yellow structure boasts a rich history and has become a symbol of the city. The clock tower was added in the 1830s. To plan Antigua vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Arco de Santa Catalina reviews
The Arco is a tourist attraction here in Antigua and there are many restaurants on the same street. Definitely worth checking out when in Antigua. more »
Gorgeous piece of architecture. It's definitely a must see when in Antigua. Try and go super early in the morning or late at night. During the day, even during COVID, it's got lots of people hustling.... more »
Most iconic site of Antigua. This is the arch which is on the souvenir magnets. Can get a phenomenal picture with mountain in the background. Saw a couple taking their wedding pics here. We went at 9am and there was barely any crowd so we were able to take great pictures that didn't have a bunch of other people in the pics lol
La Antigua is always great to visit, a bit over-rated to my taste though. Accommodation is on the expensive side when considering the standard you get. It’s a place to walk, great coffee in the area and you can even tour a coffee production place. If you want to just rest this is the place to be. Lots and lots of international tourists.
