This picturesque alley is so named because it is narrow enough for two lovers to kiss from opposite sides of the street.

It's a cute little "callejon" arrive early if you want to capture a photo otherwise, you'll be waiting endlessly for your turn.

So ... perhaps the most, and certainly among the most, touristy drop by places in this lovely city. Free photo op from the street or pay a small charge to get a photo with your significant other from the terrace/balcony/ window.

This place is a must visit, is an iconic part of Gto, the story is interesting very close to downtown, walking distance from Jardin Union, beautiful with the tradition to kiss your significant other on the 3rd step for good luck of the relationship

You can have a picture taken of the two of you leaning over balconies on opposite sides of the narrow alley to kiss

This can become a tourist trap, as everyone wants a picture kissing their sweetheart. You can find a path around it and instead of going up, go down. If you want to go up, you’ll have to wait in line, while everyone is taking pictures.

It is a lot of fun to wander around the Callejones de Guanajuato and there are plenty of interesting sights and vistas. This just isn't one of them. After reading the legend, the tiny flight of narrow stairs is completely anti-climactic. So what, they could...More

Crowded place for photo taking lovers... overrated and a haste. Nothing for singles and not for romantic people.

Great place for photo opportunity with loved one(s). Cute history of Callejon del Beso.There could be a line waiting for their turn to take pictures. Please wait your turn and offer to take pictures for others.

Nothing much wait in line for your turn to do the little package or head straight in, Into the shop to the right of the alleyway. There is a staircase to the left. Go up, to leave they will advise to take another staircase... More
