Beautiful building in the historic part of town. We were able to go inside and it is a wonder! Located among shopping, restaurants, city parks & old, cool buildings. Enjoy music in the park on your stroll through the area

Part of any walking tour in Guanajuato. Well conserved, totally worth it. Located just meters from the main square El Jardín.

If you liked parochial architecture, you'll enjoy the Basílica. But I did not find it particularly nice. Worth a visit, though

The strikingly beautiful basilica is just one of the marvelous sites in Guanajuato. It is located just down the street from the central park. There are lots to see in this historic city and the basilica is one of many "must see" places.
