Take in the history and architecture at Guatemala City's crowning landmark, Palacio Nacional. The dictatorial government of Jose Ubico built this former presidential palace in the early 1940s, designed in a mix of styles ranging from Spanish Renaissance to Neoclassical. Over the decades it has seen earthquakes and government coups; today it is open for public viewing as a museum. Take a guided tour of the building to learn about its rich history and observe the ornate decor, paintings, and murals that grace the interior. Put Palacio Nacional and other Guatemala City attractions into our Guatemala City itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
