Guanajuato is the ideal place to satisfy your curiosity about Mexican history and culture, while at the same time it allows you to have plenty of fun with your friends. Known for its beautiful colonial buildings, you can tour the city on foot along cobblestone streets and through tunnels as you visit various parks and squares, where you’ll find outdoor performances of mimes and other street artists. During your visit, be sure to visit the Monumento al Pipila (Monument of Pipila), where you can get an excellent view of the city. Other must-sees are the Museo de las Momias (Mummy Museum) and the showrooms on the university campus. If you’re in Guanajuato during the last week of October, you can enjoy the International Cervantes Festival, Mexico’s most important cultural event, which offers live music, theatrical and dance performances, and much more.
