The picturesque city of Antigua is a cultural and historical attraction in the country. For more than 233 years, until the devastating earthquake of 1773, it has even been the capital of Guatemala. The city is surrounded by three volcanoes, Agua, Acantenango and Fuego, which are periodically active and still pose a serious threat to the inhabitants of the region. The city center, which was restored after the earthquake, has since escaped urban modernization and in 1979 was declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations. Thanks to the excellent climatic conditions and the most fertile volcanic soils, different varieties of Arabica coffee such as "Bourbon" and Catuai thrive here at altitudes of 1,500 above sea level.
