Ciudad Histórica de Guanajuato, bien cultural inscrito en Historic City of Guanajuato, a cultural heritage site inscribed in 1988 on the World Heritage List.

Guanajuato, an ancient mining town with a monumental history, has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Situated in a ravine, its irregular layout is shaped by the surrounding hills.

This city was founded by the Spanish in the early 15th century and became the world's leading center for silver extraction in the 18th century.

This wealth led to the construction of large religious, civic, and industrial buildings, as well as an entire infrastructure that included underground streets, tunnels, dams, and mining facilities, both in the central area and in neighboring colonies. One notable feature is the "Boca del Infierno," a mine shaft with a diameter of 12 meters and a depth of 600 meters.

Regarding its religious architecture, Guanajuato boasts several of the most beautiful examples of Baroque architecture in the Americas. In fact, the architectural design and decorations found in the city's Baroque and Neoclassical buildings, built during the mining boom, had a great influence on the architecture and urban planning of the region.

Guanajuato has also played a significant role in shaping Mexico's history, as it had a prominent place in the independence movements.

While exploring its various alleys, visitors encounter a city full of charm and romance, with a unique atmosphere that has given rise to multiple legends, such as the Alley of the Kiss and the Alley of the Countess.

Currently, it combines a bohemian and intellectual ambiance, where student musical groups (estudiantinas), squares, alleys, and underground tunnels come together, creating a special magic.

Guanajuato is also home to one of the most important cultural events on an international level, the Cervantino Festival, where artistic expressions from around the world converge in this historic city. It is the most important artistic and cultural event in Latin America, featuring opera, theater, dance, music, exhibitions, and various cultural expressions on the streets.

Guanajuato reaches a maximum temperature of 26°C in summer and a minimum of 7°C in winter.
