Still exuding the grace and glory of its colonial past, Antigua was one of the most important urban centers of the Spanish empire and is today a UNESCO World Heritage Site, recognizing its extensive Baroque period architecture and rich heritage. Founded in the early 16th century as the original Spanish capital of Guatemala, in the subsequent three centuries Antigua acquired a number of grand monuments. While it was largely destroyed by an earthquake in 1773, its principal landmarks are still preserved as ruins. The city's pattern of straight lines, established by the grid of streets inspired by the Italian Renaissance, is one of the best examples of Latin American town planning. Most of the surviving civil, religious and civic buildings date from the 17th and 18th centuries and constitute magnificent examples of colonial architecture in the Americas.
