Guanajuato

Guanajuato is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and a charming colonial-era city situated in a picturesque valley surrounded by the Sierra Gordo Mountains.

The city built its wealth after silver was discovered in the region in the late 1600’s. Colorful architecture has a distinct European flavor and shady plazas are dotted with sidewalk cafes, museums, theaters, markets and historic monuments. Guanajuato is home to many annual cultural events, including the famous Cervantino Festival of Performing Arts.
