If you're in Guanajuato, this church is impossible to miss. It's a very imposing, colorful, and pretty building right in its center. It's surrounded by bars and hotels, as well as most of the places you'll want to visit around town.

This place takes you to medieval Spain in spirit. The basilica is a wonder by itself. There are a lot of street performers and food stalls in front of the basilica in the evenings.

It is a beautiful old church in the center of town with lots of restaurants and bars. This area offers the most night life . The main street around the area is blocked off to all traffic which is great to just stroll, shop and eat. If you are ever in the area, Guanajuato is a must visit for at least a few days.

There were religious celebrations going on when we were there so the church was packed with pilgrims. We followed the bands and the pilgrims. Suddenly the chandeliers lit up. Truly memorable!

What a lovely treat this was. There was some sort of ceremony going on when I happened upon this gem that is sat down in a cafe across the street and just watch the performers in the church courtyard. Very entertaining.

When they were done and the crowd dispersed I walked over to the church and it a simply amazing. The interior was gorgeous, the dark ling and the height inside was spectacular.
