Things to do in Guanajuato
The name of this famous alleyway comes from an old folk tale.
Two young people lived across the alley from each other and although the girl’s father forbade their relationship, they were in love and continued to see one another.
Because the lane is so narrow, their balconies almost touched, allowing the young couple to kiss in secret! The story has a tragic ending, but if you go to this alleyway and stand on the red step and kiss your significant other, you’ll have 7 years of happiness.
For couples, this is one of the most romantic things to do in Guanajuato. This highly-rated walking tour brings you here to the Alley of the Kiss, plus many other stops in the city.
If you’re interested in sampling delicious street foods, visiting some markets and walking around the city, this tour is for you!
The food in Mexico has historical significance and has actually been given UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage status. Not only that, but the cuisine is so tasty. The best way to find (and eat) traditional food is by joining a tour with a knowledgeable guide.
From authentic gorditas and sopes, to tamales and tacos, this food tour will take you around to all of the hot spots and best vendors.
After devouring delicious snacks, sipping on Mexican coffee and finishing it all off with homemade ice cream, you’ll be ready for a nap. Check out Mexico Street Food Tours for details.
Diego Rivera was Frida’s husband and a famous artist in Mexico.
His home has now been turned into a museum/art gallery and you can wander through and take a glimpse into the rooms of his actual home — which are still set up with furniture.
In order to turn the home into an art gallery, the house has been added onto. You’ll find some fantastic pieces here, by both Rivera and other more modern artists as well.
The best way to understand what you’re looking at and to get a better glimpse into the life at and to get a better glimpse into the life of Diego Rivera is to join a tour. Click here to find Diego’s home on the map.
It’s like an escalator, which is great as the mountainside is quite steep. Once at the top, you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views over the colorful city of Guanajuato, as well as an up-close view of the statue of Pipila, a local hero.
The funicular is located behind Teatro Juarez. A one-way ticket costs 30 pesos, while a return journey is 60. I recommend taking the funicular up, and walking down. Click here to find it on the map.
There are a few markets in town, but the most important (and biggest) is the Mercado Hidalgo. Vendors set up shop here selling everything from fresh fruits and clothing to cheese and meat.
You may notice that the iron building sort of resembles a train station, and you’re right, that’s what it was initially supposed to be! Even if you’re not interested in purchasing anything, it’s still worth a visit to see the unique building and the goods for sale.
There are numerous churches and cathedrals in and around the city center.
You can’t miss the vibrant yellow Basilica de Guanajuato which dominates the main plaza, while the San Cayetano (La Valenciana) is located out near the mines.
The Templo de la Compañía is considered one of the finest examples of the Churrigueresque style in Latin America. The facade of this church may seem a bit rundown, but the interior is stunning.
Wandering around aimlessly in Guanajuato is fun, but if you want to learn about the buildings the history of the city and find some secret spots, then I suggest joining a walking tour with a local.
The same owner of the food tour listed above runs an interesting historical walking tour around the city. During the trip, you’ll explore back alleys, two museums, Diego Rivera’s home, Teatro Juarez, and take a ride up the funicular to the spectacular viewpoint.
