Ruta Histórica Ciudad de Guatemala

Avenida de La ReformaEl paso de la era ilustrada hacia un periodo de influencia
más romántica es ampliamente percibida a lo largo del Paseo de La Reforma. Su construcción ordenada por el
Presidente José María Reina Barrios se inspira en los Parques Eliseos en Paris, Francia, los cuales trató de
imitar en el pais. Por ello trajo artistas extranjeros para contratarlos directamente en el diseño y elaboración
de varias esculturas, plazas y fuentes que adornan el paseo, elección que produjó un colapso económico del país.Originalmente nombrado Bulevard 30 de Junio se inauguró en 1895, tiene uria extensión de 2.26
kilómetros, inicia en el norte con el Monumento al Ejército, en el límite hacia el sur concluia en lo que era
el Palacio de la Reforma, donde actualmente está el Obelisco. Fuente: Plano de la ciudad de Guatemala, Ing. Claudio Urrutia y Emilio Gómez, 1894
