Quetzaltenango Cathedral, Quetzaltenango, Guatemala.

The church was destroyed after an earthquake, but the original front facade still stands today, although the rest of the structure is not exactly new...

Is the Guatemala City Cathedral colonial? Pre-1821? I guess it has to be, I think the city was founded in 1776.

Is this the Cathedral facing the main plaza? The one that was semi-destroyed?

BTW, the colonial Cathedral in San Salvador (destroyed in 1873), was practically modeled after the one in Antigua.

This little jewel in San Vicente, El Salvador, is one of the oldest colonial churches in Central America. (1762)

With thick heavy walls, and vaulted roof.

It was restored in 2007.

in 1889 the north wings were demolished to open the "Avenida de Mayo"
then 1931 were demolished the south wings to open the diagonal " Julio A. Roca"

The north archs was demolished in 1889 to create space for the Avenida de Mayo avenue and the three northernmost arches of the original eleven were demolished. In 1931, to create room for the Julio A. Roca avenue, the three southernmost arcs were removed, thereby restoring the central place of the tower, but leaving only five

Guatemala City Cathedral's facade received severe damage in the 1917 earthquakes, so it had to be restored. That's the only thing i know about.

The Antigua Cathedral is the one on the central square, but it's just a small part. The actual cathedral is behind that one and is completely destroyed.

A bit of Portuguese colonial architecture in Brazil: Ouro Preto, the Gold City, was in the XVIII one of the biggest colonial cities from Americas.

Preserved until now as a miracle, all the city core dates back to XVII to XIX centuries.
