Portal del ComercioTipo: Arquitectura CivilConstrucción: Siglo XVIIIEstilo: NeoclásicoCon la demarcación de la Plaza Mayor en la Nueva Ciudad de Guatemala, se dispuso al sur el Portal de Comercio, Real Aduana, Estanco del Tabaco y el Correo. La edificación original fue diseñada por el arquitecto Marcos Ibáñez y estaba compuesta de arcos de medio punto; se le conocía también como "Portal de Mercaderes" y "Portal de Aycinena". Los terremotos de 1917 y 1918 destruyeron por completo el Portal. Fue reconstruido en 1924 por el arquitecto Juan Domergue, quien basándose en las columnas del Palacio Arzobispal y del Colegio de Infantes, lo integró a los otros edificios de la Plaza. En este Portal se instaló la primera vitrina en Guatemala, en el almacén de Ángel Muttini.
