Churches in Guatemala

Recently I had the opportunity to travel in Guatemala. Aside from the stunning scenery and welcoming people, I was amazed at the numerous, beautiful churches I encountered all over the country. Guatemala is a very religious country, with a large population of Roman Catholics and a long history with the Church. Over the centuries the churches have withstood earthquakes, mudslides, abandonment and civil war. The churches and convents in the gallery below are in various states of repair and restoration.
