La Democracia Things to Do
This huge Olmec heads can be seen exposed in the Parque Central (Main Plaza), some of them weighing upto 5 tons. The Olmec are pre-columbian people and flourished from 1,400 bce to about 400 bce, there´s a theory that said that these heads are pre-Olmec (so Guatemala was the origin of this culture not Mexico) but it´s not proven.
The Municipality building has an open air corridor decorated with baroque lamps, they really look weird with the town style.
The road that takes you from Guatemala to La Democracia has great views of the volcanoes and the lush mountains.
