English: "Santa Catalina Arch" is a landmark in Antigua Guatemala, on 5th Avenue North. Built in the 17th century, it originally connected the Santa Catalina convent to a school, allowing the cloistered nuns to pass from one building to the other without going out on the street. A clock on top was added in the era of the Central American Federation, c. 1830s.
