About Guanajuato

Why visit Guanajuato?

Guanajuato is a fantastic tourist destination in the central hills of Mexico and was the original Spanish colonial silver mining town. From the wealth discovered in the ground below Guanajuato massive and elaborate construction projects were funded, no other Mexican city has a greater density of both important religious buildings and stately colonial mansions. It was from Guanajuato that the first sparks of independence swelled within Mexico and it was also here that the independence movement achieved their first victory.
