The iconic Santa Catalina Arch is one of Antigua Guatemala’s best known landmarks, and provides a striking orange-yellow setting on 5th Avenue North for the smoking Volcan de Agua in the background. It was originally built in 1693 as an internal passageway connecting the Santa Catalina convent to a school across the street, allowing the nuns to cross over to the other side without going out on the street. It has a French clock on the turret.
