Antigua is not only a sleepy town, but a popular tourist destination as well. Among the landmarks that offer a distinctive look is the church, Cruz de los Caldos that was built in 1785. It is open to the general public during the mornings and sometimes in the afternoons. The village square occupies the space next to the church. All year round, it is filled with beautiful flower blooms that make the square an attractive place to visit.
Although tourism plays a crucial role, the main economy relies on fishing and agriculture. Yet, these don't stop younger people from looking for work in the nearby Caleta de Fuste resort. The town is also popular for its thriving market, which is evident in the flyers handed out to everyone during events.
It may just be a small town but Antiqua offers several social facilities for the locals, which include the library, post office, clinic, and school. They also use the church hall for general meetings and announcements.
Small and historical – this is what makes Antigua a great holiday destination, especially for people who want total peace and relaxation during their escape. Accommodation is not a problem, since the town offers hotels and other lodging options that can cater to every visitor's needs. Perhaps you might want to spend your next holiday here.
