About Guanajuato

Population: 5.486.372 (2010)
Capital: Guanajuato
Temperatures: between 12ºC and 24º C.

The setting of the city is very beautiful: is stands in a narrow gorge amid wild and striking scenery. The streets are steep and narrow - some so narrow that it is possible to exchange kisses from opposite balconies, this is where the Callejon del Beso takes its name from. The La Bufa mountain looms over the city.

The main sight in town is the Alhondiga de Granadita A granary that was converted into a fortress and which now houses a series of museums. There are a few interesting colonial churches in town as well, the best ones being the San Francisco -dating from 1671- the San Diego -from 1663- and the La Venalciana 5 km out of the centre in one of the mining areas.

A rather peculiar sight is the Museo de las Momias - a museum with mummies. Christmas in Guanajuato is an unforgettable experience that is worth experiencing to the full. This is the time of the traditional callejoneadas, when the lively tunes of student music groups fill the night air. One of the most important events in Mexico is undoubtedly the International Cervantes Festival, which originated in 1952, with the presentation of the Entremeses Cervantinos in the Plaza de San Roque. If you are interested in seeing this festival or any other of the city’s events, Guanajuato one of the easiest states to reach because of its broad network of highways and international airport in the city of León.
