Tomb of Hermano Pedro
Saint Hermano Pedro - Hermano Pedro (1626-1667) was born in the Canary Islands and was called by God to help the poor in Guatemala. Once here, he created a a shelter for the homeless, schools for the poor, an oratory, and an inn for priests. He is said to have seen the face of Jesus in every poor person he worked with. His life-long dedication to serving the poor earned him beatification on June 22, 1980 and on July 30, 2002 he was declared a saint by Pope John Paul II. Many people visit the tomb of Saint Hermano Pedro in Antigua's San Francisco Church to have their prayers fulfilled. Legend says that if you say a prayer and tap on his tomb, your request is answered (and judging by the number of thank you notes, it's more than a legend).

El Arco with Monkey
El Arco de Santa Catalina - Probably the most famous landmark in Antigua is El Arco de Santa Catalina (or the Santa Catalina Arch) located on 5th Avenue North. Originally built in the 1600s, the archway allowed cloistered nuns to walk between the convent on one side of the street to the school on the other side, without encountering anyone. Like most structures in Guatemala it was destroyed by an earthquake and rebuilt in the early 1800s to its current version with a clock tower. Through the orange hued arch, the 12,340 foot Aqua Volcano can be seen rising majestically above the coastal plain. Of course to see it you need a clear day and no sock monkeys blocking the view. :(|)
