Today many of the residential homes have been replaced by modern buildings and it is now considered a business and commercial district. Also, a cycleway was built along the avenue in 2013. Part of the Avenida Reforma is closed to traffic on Sunday mornings, as part of a program implemented by the Guatemala City Municipality. Throughout the 20th century, more sculptures were added, honoring diverse people such as Henry Dunant, founder of the Red Cross; Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla and Benito Juárez, Mexican leaders; José Joaquín Palma and Rafael Álvarez Ovalle, creators of the national anthem of Guatemala; and Miguel Ángel Asturias, winner of the 1967 Nobel Prize in Literature. Other notable monuments are the Monumento a la Madre, which honors motherhood, and several statues of animals such as lions, bulls, and wild boars.

For those history and architecture lovers out there, this is a spot that can´t be missed. Is an imposing twin-towered structure. It stands 300 feet long and 100 feet wide on the east side of the Constitution Square. It was designed by the Spanish architect Marcos Ibáñez and built in the neoclassical style with completion in 1815. The cathedral has survived three major earthquakes: 1830, 1917, and 1976. Here you will appreciate the image of the Virgen del Perpetuo Socorro (Our Lady of Perpetual Help), the oldest catholic image in Guatemala, brought by Hernán Cortés in 1522.
