Fodor's Review

After a year-long restoration and refurbishing, Antigua's Museum of Colonial Art gleams once again. On the former site of the University of San Carlos, the complex, its cloisters left largely intact through the shakier centuries, holds a collection of mostly 17th-century religious paintings and statues commissioned by the Castilians. There's also a display of photographs of Semana Santa celebrations.
