Move through the streets of any city, and you’ll eventually come across a graffiti. Guatemala City is no different; colourful letters and memorable characters bring life to the dull concrete of certain walls around town. There’s one place where graffiti stands out, though: in Zone 1, in 9th avenue and between 11th and 12th street, one can find a wall the length of the whole block covered in street art. Local graffiti artists refer to this particular wall simply as “the spot”.
