When the Spaniards moved the seat of government from Cuidad Vieja to Santiago (present day Antigua) in 1543, it was from this building that they ruled over all of Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and parts of Mexico, including Chiapas, Tabasco, and the Yucatan. As the Political and Military headquarters of the Spanish Colonies, the Palace housed royal offices, the royal treasury, working spaces for scribes and administration, barracks for guards and troops, even a stable for 34 horses. Until 1773 when, due to an earthquake, a decision was made to move the capital to Guatemala City.
