make sure to staop by this landmark. A great place for a picture. Ther are a few shops worth going into as well as Frida's, a Mexican restaurant with great food

Main tourist area. Nice, crowded and busy. Bars, restaurants and Choco La La (handmade chocolates) there to relax.

I found the mango sellers wandering underneath the arc to be of very good company. Nothing much to see, walk there if you have to wander Antigua for the day.

A nice photo but hardly a reason to linger. At night, one side of the clock wasn't lit. You'd think if this was your most famous landmark, you'd pay more attention to it.

during the weekend when they block off the street for pedestrians. Otherwise the road is a functioning road. :-) Make sure the volcano is visible through the arc. :-)
