Satellite view is showing Hagåtña (formerly Agana), the territorial capital of the U.S. Territory Guam, an island in an archipelago along the Mariana Trench in the western Pacific Ocean, known as the Mariana Islands.

The town is located at the mouth of the Hagåtña river on Guam's west coast, bounded by the beaches of Agana Bay to the north, Tutuhan village in south and the residential town of Mongmong-Toto-Maite in east.

The village served as the island's population and administrative center even before Guam's colonization by the Spanish. Today it the second smallest of the 19 villages of Guam with a population of about 1,100 inhabitants. The town is home to Guam's legislature, the governor's office and other government offices like the District Court of Guam.
