WELCOME TO GUATEMALA!
THE LAND OF CULTURAL AND ARTISTIC VARITY
Undergoing a process of renovation and high-technology modernization to adjust to its more than three-million population, Guatemala City blends an impressive skyline of contemporary architecture, boutiques, malls and beautiful residential neighborhoods with homes and businesses dating back to the beginning of the 20th century, such a historic market and houses, which speak of by-gone days.
Amidst this colorful mosaic, sits the beautiful campus of the Universidad Francisco Marroquin, a private institution of higher education with its impeccable and manicured landscapes and renowned arboretum, a treat to visitors and locals alike.
The University houses an extraordinary cultural center with the Auditorium Juan Bautista Gutierrez, home of the Festival Internacional Bravissimo, the Museo Popol Vuh, with its archaeological treasures and the Museo Ixchel del Traje Indígena.
A visit should be considered a must for anybody visiting the City. Ask your hotel concierge for information and book a tour.
The Festival Internacional Bravissimo of the Department of Performing Arts of the University Francisco Marroquín, presents a plethora of excellent concerts with world class artists and international troupes. Be sure to check out our website at conciertos.ufm.edu and purchase your tickets online. Please collect at box office upon arrival at the Auditorium.
