Landmarks · Specialty Museums · Sacred & Religious Sites
Recognized as a World Heritage Site, Guanajuato spills over hilly terrain in central Mexico, luring visitors with its pleasant tree-shaded plazas and friendly sidewalk cafes. Founded in the 16th century as a mining center, the city now represents one of Mexico's top destinations for architecture and history buffs. Attending local festivals and strolling through the lively streets remain top things to do in Guanajuato, an old city with a youthful energy and a huge student population. A truly unique destination in terms of infrastructure, the city features a network of major roads that run through underground tunnels, former riverbeds. Take the guesswork out of planning a Mexico vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
