Our facilities are located in Casa Antigua “El Jaulón”, a 16th. Century Spanish residence that belonged to Pedro de Alvarado, conqueror of Guatemala. “El Jaulón” was destroyed several times by earthquakes and was finally restored in 1993. This is the only monument in Antigua Guatemala that has been fully restored by a group of private investors (including Casa del Jade). Today, the building offers the tourist: banks, restaurants, coffee shops, travel agencies, art galleries and Guatemalan handicrafts. And in our store, handy-cap friendly facilities.
