Custom Enamel Pin, Santa Catalina Arch
Santa Catalina Arch or now known as the Calle Del Arco (or street of the arch). Built in 1694 as a secret passageway for the nuns who had taken seclusion vows. The arch or bridge provided a private way for them to travel back & forth while still honoring their vows ... because they lived on one side & taught on the other. Within the arch is a hidden bridge that they would use and cannot be seen from the street below. Today, the arch is an iconic Antigua landmark & on a clear day the Volcán de Agua peeks right through its yellow frame.
