The haunted ruins of Santa Clara

Greetings from Antigua…wish you were here!

Photo above of the ruins of Santa Clara Church, inaugurated in 1734 and destroyed four decades later by a powerful earthquake.  

I fell in love with Antigua, clearly one of the most beautiful cities in the world.  I adored the cobblestone streets, brightly colored buildings, volcanoes and immaculate churches colored in whites and yellows.  But most of all, I loved the ruins which remained intact behind the grand reconstructed churches.  They offer a glimpse into Antigua’s dramatic past and the powerful force of mother nature.
