  • Guanajuato Basilica is both the most visually striking and historically important. The exterior of the Guanajuato Basilica is painted a powerful shade of yellow with wine red detail and doomed roof. It is positioned on a slight hill which when viewed from the town makes the basilica stand higher than the surrounding buildings and if viewed from the surrounding hills it gives the illusion of the Guanajuato Basilica elevated above everything else.
  • Beautiful and in good location, you can grab a cafe and enjoy the view.
