—Ciudad de Guatemala —

Paseo de la SextaUna vez asentada la ciudad el principal eje vial era la
Calle Real, hoy Paseo de la Sexta, que enlaza la Plaza Mayor de la Constitución con El Calvario templo que marcaba los limites al sur de la ciudad.A lo largo del Paseo se pueden observar distintas corrientes arquitectónicas que denotan la influencia de las tendencias internacionales de la época en las construcciones locales. Tales como: Neoclásico, con la Iglesia de San Francisco como máximo exponente de esta corriente, Art Decó, ecléctico y modernista. Durante muchas décadas la Sexta Avenida Sur se posicionó como el centro del comercio, ubicandose a lo largo de su recorrido las mejores tiendas y comercios, que en el lenguaje popular se le llamaba "sextear", es decir
un paseo por sus calles para apreciar las vitrinas de las tiendas y el encuentro con los vecinos.
