This is definitely one of the highlights in the city. Mind boggling it was done in the early 1900's to scale without the benefit of modern equipment.

Interesting to see but that's all there is in the area. The place is dirty and tourists get hassled by sellers of a lot of stuff. If you happen to be near, check it out. Otherwise I would not recommend it.

I have been travelling to Guate off and on for almost 20 years and never knew this existed until this trip. Quite interesting and put the terrain of the country into context for me.
