Día de Santiago Apostol

"On July 25 La Antigua Guatemala celebrates the Saint James Apostle Day with all kinds of festivities."

"Why is Saint James the patron saint of La Antigua Guatemala? Well, the previous name for Antigua Guatemala was La Muy Noble y Muy Leal Ciudad de Santiago de los Caballeros de Guatemala, or The Very Noble and Very Loyal City of Saint James of the Knights of Guatemala."
