Everyone says Guatemala is dangerous and should be avoided. I coudn´t disagree more. We visited during their Independence month, and all I saw were families enjoying their history, weather and food. Great place to shop, eat and just enjoy beautiful Guate.

The view from the outside is impresive enough, but it is nothing compared to what you will find inside the building. You will get transported back in time to 1940's. Its archiquecture, ornament, lamps, doors, gardens, murals, etc, are magnificient. The influence of Spain's Mudejar...More

The Palacio was in a nice central square with a large market place in front. It was done in a typically colonial Spanish style in decorative and structure. State pieces on display show the contribution of the Spanish to the indigenous style and beliefs.

It just opens for public for specified time, so I guess it not an exact sightseeing, would be not considerate for all visitors.
