Built in 1530, 17m above sea level in an earthquake-prone region, Antigua, Guatemala was founded in 1524 as Santiago de Guatemala.
It was subsequently destroyed by a fire caused an uprising of the indigenous population. Re-established in 1527 and entirely buried as a result of earthquakes and avalanche in 1541.
The third location, in the Valley of Panchoy or Pacan, was inaugurated in march 1543 and served for 230 years. It has survived natural disasters of floods, volcanic eruptions and other serious tremors until 1773 when Santa Marta earthquake destroyed much of the town.
