Old silver-producing Maine
The work of this mine began before 1868, the year in which the company was formed, whose aim was to explore the veins of silver from this mine and other mines. Currently, it belongs to the University of Guanajuato, where the students carry out their practices.
The monument to El Pípila honors the hero who torched the gates of the Alhóndiga on September 28, 1810, where the Spanish had barricaded themselves, enabling Hidalgo’s forces to win the first victory of the independence movement. The statue shows El Pípila holding his torch high over the city. It’s worth going up to the statue or the magnificent view over the city.
The tunnels of Guanajuato. The city was originally built over the Guanajuato River, which flowed through tunnels underneath the city. However, after years of raising buildings to accommodate repeated flooding, in the mid-twentieth century, engineers built a dam and redirected the river into underground caverns. The tunnels were lit and paved with cobblestones for automobile traffic, and this underground road network carries the majority of cars driving through the city today. It is one of the most notable features of the city.
Guanajuato is full of alleys called callejones in Spanish, and one of the most famous ones is called “El Callejon del Beso” or The Alley of the Kiss. This alley is so narrow, that both balconies almost touch. The legend says that at eight every night, two love-struck youth named Ana and Carlos who were dating in secret would meet at this alley, and eventually, their love began to grow. But their love was doomed. In the end, they tragically died just like Romeo and Juliet.
Iconographic Museum of Quixote.
Don Quijote de la Mancha, written by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra is one of the most famous and widely read literary works in the world. For these reasons and to pay tribute to such a witty character, the Iconographic Museum of Quixote was inaugurated in 1987 in the heart of Guanajuato.
The old, 18th. century European-style building keeps a vast collection of over 800 pieces, including oil paintings, acrylics, prints, bronze sculptures, handicrafts, ceramics, etc. The central theme of almost all of the pieces is the figure of Don Quixote, alone or accompanied by one of the characters in the book.
Diego Rivera Museum.
Guanajuato is proud to be home to this beautiful 18th- Century house, where Diego Rivera was born, one of the most renowned Mexican artists in the world. The house has been perfectly preserved as it was when the Rivera family lived here. This museum features more than 100 original works by the Mexican painter, undoubtedly one of the most important collections in the country.
Teatro Juarez is an unmistakable landmark in Guanajuato. The access to the theater is guarded by two statues of lions. Its stone facade is composed of 12 columns, on top of which are 8 of the 9 Greek muses, symbolizing the Fine Arts. The inside is decorated with an amazing fresco, representing the ancient city of Constantinople. Thanks to its diverse architectural style, it is considered one of the most beautiful buildings in the country. It is also the main backdrop for the Cervantino International Festival.
