St. Joseph Cathedral originally built as a Renaissance church, but rebuilt in the Baroque style

St. Joseph Cathedral was originally built as a Renaissance church, but restored in the Baroque style. Antigua is the capital and largest city of the homonymous municipality and the Guatemalan department Sacatepéquez. It is situated in the valley Pankoy, surrounded by volcanoes. Volcán de Agua, 3766 meters high, is named so because it often produces slides with mud in liquid form, Acatenango is 3976 meters high, and most active one is Volcán de Fuego, 3763 meters high.
