This picturesque alley is so named because it is narrow enough for two lovers to kiss from opposite sides of the street.

This is close to the Mercado Hidalgo but not nearly as fun. Honestly, I didn't even realize I was there until I noticed the group of people snapping pics of this dark and narrow alley. I don't know how to say Meh in Spanish.

It's ok just to go and see the place of the tale about this couple, the way there is nice but the actual site is too touristy and not very well kept

I wouldn't make this spot your sole destination but when walking through downtown you really do need to see this alley and take time to learn the story and its closeness to Romeo and Juliet.

Too dirty and unorganized. Too crowded and is not worth it. Everything around this area is dirty and smells bad.

This is really just an alley if you don't know the story about it. The balconies are quite close as one is much larger. If you can go during the week, the crowds are much smaller, making it easier to get a good picture and...More
