Overview

This avenue runs from Calle Primera to Calle Viente along the boundary of Zones 13 and 14. Due to its high artistic and historical value it is regarded as part of the National Heritage of Guatemala. This avenue pays tribute to every country on the American continent with metal badges in wrought iron frames on every corner. There are also many squares with sculptures representing important personalities from the sponsoring country. Among them are the monuments to Simon Bolivar, Cristobal Colon, Reyna Barrios and Juan Pablo II. At weekends, between 10a and 5p, Guatemalan families visit the avenue, transforming it into an amusement center for children where you can buy food and sweets as well as have horse, mule and goat rides.
