  • We stumbled upon this hidden treasure while out on a walk from the bus station to our hostal. It is well preserved/ restored and a sight worth seeing  more »
  • This building is the headquarters of the folk, and modern Ballet Municipal School of painting, Rayuela theatre company, among others. This building has the "Ubiquista" style, so called because in the time of Jorge Ubico marked the era of architecture in the country. Post was declared a national monument in 1981, we are proud to have this type of architecture, which in general is more appreciated by tourists who for us nationals.

  • We have had regard to the post office. Post office employees do not like their attitude to work but at least the building itself was fun to watch. Z o n a 1 is located in the heart of Guatemala City and nearby attractions in tourism as a lot of you are just like one as you walk.
