Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979, Antigua exudes a unique atmosphere of history and tranquillity along its cobbled streets. This charming town holds baroque treasures to explore from churches to convents, monasteries and museums. Surrounding the town are coffee farms, volcanic peaks perfect for hiking, biking and bird-watching, colourful textile markets and villages.
