Santa Catalina Arch - Antigua, Guatemala
The Santa Catalina Arch is one of the most distinguishable buildings in Antigua. Built in the 17th century, the arch was originally built to connect the Santa Catalina convent, to a school, allowing the nuns to pass between the two buildings, without having to go down and cross the street below. The clock on top of the arch was added later, in the 1830′s.
The design of the Guatemala Post Office Building was inspired by the Santa Catalina Arch.
