This is just one of several churches in Guanajuato!
And each one is spectacular to go into, view and take photos!
The architecture and workmanship is stunning!!
Look up and all around! In one church there was a magnificent pipe organ!!
It looked as though there was a rehearsal in progress as a man was playing it while a woman sang. It was quite beautiful!

Bit be respectful and aware. It might be a rare occurrence but we walked in (unaware) during a funeral. It wasn't until they proceeded down the aisle with the casket that we knew! At this time, we moved outside and then left to come back later.

This basilica is one of the most beautiful that I have seen in Mexico. Its decoration inside is subtle, but elegant.

It is a peaceful break from all your walking around the city.

Even if you don't go inside, everybody hangs outside by the fountain plaza or at the nearby outdoors cafe's, taking selfies in front of the Basilica of our Lady of Guanajuato. At night time it's the center's most illuminated view especially from the Pipila statue.

This is another beautiful and historic church. It has been well kept and you can visit for free. (Donations are accepted) if you want to take pictures make sure you turn off your flash.
