TOP SIGHTS IN GUANAJUATO

Alhóndiga de Granaditas

An imposing neoclassical architectural work built from 1796 to 1809.

This building is made of carved quarry stone and rubble masonry. Initially, it served as a storage and grain market, but its purpose changed when the independence movement started, and it became a symbol of the nation as the site where the first insurgent battle took place. It is a sober, elegant, and majestic building resembling a fortress.

Currently, it houses the Regional Museum of Guanajuato, which exhibits artworks ranging from pre-Hispanic times to the present day.

Location

Calle Mendizábal No. 6, Centro, Guanajuato, Gto.
