Last weekend I went to Guanajuato.
It’s a small mining city in the state of the same name, it’s been recognized as World Heritage Site by the UNESCO.

The city has a complete network of underground roads. And the main one was originally a river.

On top, there is a very rich architectural collection from the Colonial  Spanish era.

Some of the more famouse sites in Guanajuato are:

  • The University of Guanajuato
  • The Alhóndiga de Granaditas
  • The Juarez Theater
  • The Plaza de la Paz
  • The Santa Cecilia Castle
  • The many mining sites…

And one it’s main attractions is the Mummy Museum, but the mummies here were created by a natural mummification process derived from the elements an temperature conditions of the zone.

The city holds many cultural festivals, including the world famous Festival Cervantino, and as a turistical town is full of good places to eat and drink.
