Antigua Traditions

Some things are so traditional of Antigua, Guatemala, that you recognize them instantly as belonging to Antigua, despite possibly never having seen them before.  One of those things is the Antigua stairwell, found on roofs of old colonial buildings.  The stairwell is enclosed, and despite being out of sight of the casual observer, it's ornate enough to please anyone looking for colonial detail in the old buildings.

This colonial stairwell is atop the Meson Panza Verde restaurant in Antigua.

The fountains in Antigua are also spectacular.  The one below at the Hotel Antigua is one of the best kept in Antigua.
