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.
