Route of the Peace and National Identity
Route of the Peace and National Identity is part of the Tentative list of Guatemala in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.
The Route of the Peace and National Identity comprises four churches from the Spanish colonial period. They preserve images and other artistic elements that constitute the symbols of present day Guatemala. These include “The Black Christ of Esquipulas”, a wooden image of Christ now housed in the Cathedral Basilica of Esquipulas, with which the Spanish missionaries wished to convert the natives.
