Guanajuato: a beautiful colonial city full of treasures in the heart of Mexico

Guanajuato is a city located in central Mexico. It is a destination known for its colonial architecture and has a history as a silver mining town.

(San Miguel Post).- The city features small networks of tunnels, incredibly narrow streets, and alleyways, such as the famed Callejon del Beso, which means “Alley of the Kiss.” It was so named because the balconies of opposing buildings are so close that a couple could lean across and kiss.

There are a number of nice museums in the city, including the Museo Casa Diego Rivera, which was the former home of artist Diego Rivera.

The Alhondiga de Granaditas is an art and history museum.

The Museo de las Momias de Guanajuato, which is an odd but well-known museum that has more than a hundred mummies on display.
