Trip Planner: Central America / Guatemala / Sacatepequez Department / Antigua / Cathedral de Santiago
Observe the ruins of Cathedral de Santiago, a landmark in the World Heritage-listed capital. Built in 1541, the cathedral sustained damage in the massive 1773 earthquake, after which it was only partially reconstructed. Today, the front of the building remains, as does a small church, while the rest is in ruins. Roam the massive pillars under the open sky, see the fragments of arches and frescoed church walls, and try to imagine the grandiose original building. Admire the ornate front facade, and take haunting photographs of the mighty remains. Use our Antigua attractions planner to visit Cathedral de Santiago on your trip to Antigua, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

Lovely cathedral in center, nice when it's lit up at night as well, didn't enter it but looked from outside

A very grand and beautiful place. There is a small entrance fee but it is worth paying. A unique place made up of several arches. I think it would be great to visit at night, and I would like to visit it next time a concert is held here.
Really small. You can walk around in 2 min. Used to be Q8 for tourist, now Q20.
