I was in the city for meetings and went to a Lenten service one evening. They were saying the rosary. The Basilica is beautiful and I'm very glad I went.

This is the biggest and more frequented church in the middle of town, always busy with locals and tourists. It is hard to miss because of its location, the size and the unique orange color. The architecture is quite unique and the styles are different, depending of the time of building and renovations. As for most churches in the area, the outside is more interesting and original than the inside.

All of the Churches we stopped in while in Guanajuato and the surrounding areas were beautiful and have been well maintained. It's amazing that the area itself is so old and there is so much to see and do.

We hoped for a short visit with the priest. Although Mass started in less than half an hour, he took a few minutes after the scheduled start of Mass to be with us. He was kind and gracious.

This Basilica is close to the center of the downtown area. There are always activities and street events happening around the Basiclia.
