"Perhaps the most civilised place in Guatemala is the stunning old colonial town of Antigua. A short drive out of the capital, it's a small place with big ideas. I spent a couple of memorable days exploring the cobblestone streets, each lined with beautiful single-storey townhouses painted terracotta or Córdoba blue.
"Some of the houses are Moorish in style with chimneys like minarets and flamboyantly arching doorways; others look more Venetian, with balconied Juliet windows. All of the houses have stunning courtyards, just glimpsed from the streets, dripping with bougainvillea and jasmine. A number have been turned into fine guesthouses, like the Panza Verde."
Here's a pic of some 'Venetian' arches. If anyone can find one in Antigua they're welcome to comment here...
