Antigua, Guatemala: Casa Santo Domingo

Casa Santo Domingo, Antigua, Guatemala. April 2016.



I regret I only made the one visit to Casa Santo Domingo. I regret I didn't take more photos the one time I did go.

It was late when I returned on the shuttle from Santo Domingo del Cerro, and the museums inside Casa Santo Domingo were soon to close, so I wandered where I could.

Walking through the nooks and crannies that I could ... it's a cliche, but it was like walking into history.

Pocket gardens. Water features. Dim hallways, indirectly lit. Massively thick walls. Stairs calling you seductively upward. Candlelight. Paintings, sculptures, a marionette exhibit. Quiet, elegant dining spaces. A spa.
