Viewed from Antigua facing south. Agua is is inactive (sort of). It 1551 its caldera overflowed and covered Ciudad Vieja, the first Spanish capitol with mud. The Spanish Conquistadors moved the capitol to Santiago de Los Caballeros (Antigua) in the mid 1550's.

This active volcano dominates the city of Antigua - wherever you go you can see the impressive sight and get your bearings. It is possible to climb the volcano, but highly inadvisable without hiring an armed guard as there have been many robberies on the route. The first time I was walking down the street and looked up to see the volcano, it took me aback - a stunning vision. That feeling of surprise never really went off during the month I spent in Antigua.
