This is my favorite spot. It's best during twilight. To see how the city's lights begin to slowly twinkle under a dark blueish sky. Highly recommended.

Guanajuato is beautiful, and from here, you can get a post card view of the city. It wasn't really cold when we were up there, so the stay was nice. We actually had some fruit with Chile on our way down.

It's well worth the hike up. The view is fantastic and the scenery along the way was wonderful too. I am a fit 66 yr old woman and had no problem going up at all.

Went up around 6:30, right before sunset and the town was lit with a gorgeous warm yellow which made Guanajuato look even prettier. Great way to finish a day of strolling around museums and eating delicious street food. Good spot before getting some tacos!

You can walk up (from the central area) or take the funicular. The walk up is possible through several ally ways--one of them is next to the Don Quixote museum…you just have to start walking up through the alley way and... More
