Santa Ana

Foundation: Before the settlement of the capital of the Kingdom in the Panchoy Valley, the presbyter Juan Godínez founded around 1538 an oratory in Las Milpas de Santa Ana, which was later elevated to the category of hermitage. (AGN, 2018)

Church: Santa Ana is recognized today as the first hermitage of La Antigua Guatemala. (AGN, 2018)

It celebrates its titular feast day on July 26th. (Emilsa & Castillo, n.d.)
