    The span of archways facing the northern side of Parque Central is known as the Palacio del Ayuntamiento, an edifice that was mostly constructed in 1743 which now holds a couple historical museums, the City Hall offices, and usually groups of people waiting outside of said offices. The museums are the Museo del Libro Antiguo, honoring the history of print in Guatemala, and the Museo de Santiago, which holds the originals of the mermaid statues gracing the central fountain and historical relics from all over Guatemala. The second floor offers spectacular views of the volcanoes, and this building, like the Carcel de Hombres, once held the town jail.
