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

It was a place that we stopped at by accident and was very busy when we were there. It is free and something that you defiantly should tick off you tourist list if in the area

This is a lovely alley in Guanajuato, perhaps the most talked about. It becomes son arrow two balconies almost meet; legend has it two lovers met there at night, until the woman's father killed her over his disapproval of the relationship; apparently no daughter of her would marry a miner. As a tourist you could take a picture at the... More

the story is nice, two lovers, one poor, one rich, who found a way to see each other escaping from the parental control. Don't wait till you find the place to kiss each other.

No much to see... only to do... have a quick kiss with your loved one... but be prepared to join a queue. Although the story is lovely and finding this place means you might also discover some other wonderful alleyways and sights it not a must see.

It's a nice place. Have a very small alley and it's not so comfortably but it's perfect for marriages.

Walking through the streets of this beautiful city takes you to many attractions. Folklore says that two lovers would meet here in secret to kiss from one balcony to the other. It is part of the must do city wlk

This place has such story if you don't go their then you are missing some good stuff it's so romantic and cultural it's an alley with lots of steps and if you step on the third step you have to kiss someone on the mouth or have bad luck

I feel Alley of the Kiss was pretty but not very exciting! I might not know the history or stories that surround this alley, but I stumbled upon so many alleys around Guanajuato and they were all pretty! I came here early at like 8:30 am and we were the only ones here, so I recommend coming on an off... More

I'm not sure what we expected but this much visited alleyway was smelly and dirty...in a city where there is a photo op around every corner, sadly this was not one of them!
