Squares in San Miguel de Allende
Plaza San Miguel de Allende
The main square of San Miguel de Allende, is perhaps the most important place of the city. This is where people often gather to watch as everything happens. It is the heart of this World Heritage city. Just around the plaza remain the houses where wealthy Spanish people came to live in San Miguel during the colonial area. In one corner of the plaza, you can see the birthplace of Ignacio Allende. He was one of the heroes of National Independence.
Streets in Guanajuato
Guanajuatenses Streets
Charming and surprising. Tunnels, mines, colored houses. Friendly people. You can go as a family and enjoy. The Camino Real is the best. The chef unparalleled, all top quality and exquisitely prepared. Rooms comfortable. Large garden with pool. Quiet but close to the center. I've gone back four times.

Museums in Guanajuato
Mummy Museum (Museo de los Momias)
The Mummy Museum tells the story of a cemetery near the city, a land characterized with special geology that caused the bodies buried there be preserved well. These mummies, therefore, are different from any mummies in the world and are more than a century old. The mummified appear with their "personal history" and their original costumes, and you can even see the causes of death in some cases. The walk up to the museum from the city center is heavy but it is an opportunity to see a different downtown Guanajuato. There are trucks (buses) or you can hitch-hike.
Viewpoints in Guanajuato
Pipila viewpoint
This place gives you the best sights of the city.
Churches in León
Expiatory Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Although the location is wrong because the expiatory temple is situated on the pedestrian street, if you come on a Wednesday you must not miss the light show and live music, it is no doubt a good place to go to church. Opposite the temple there is a small square where you can enjoy a good coffee.

Fountain of the Lions
The city of Leon Guanajuato is famous for selling shoes - there is a shoe market where you can find all kinds of discounts and good quality items. The Fountain of the Lions is located in the pedestrian area, next to the house of culture and across from the memorial plaque with the names of the first Spanish settlers of the city. This fountain is really surprising - it is large, made of brass and contains the images of four lions. It was built with for the celebration of the 400th anniversary of the founding of the city (1976).

As soon as you get to the garden, you'll smell the whiff of meat. Here, you'll see happy people and a beautiful view. You can have a beer or a glass of wine to accompany your delicious meal. At night there is a cafe just opposite the theater where you can listen to music.

Purísima del Rincón
It is a great chance to visit one of the most representative of Guanajuato, Purisima del Rincon, a city that celebrates Easter in a way unparalleled since it is not Jesus who stars in the celebration, but Judas. For more than 138 years they have celebrated La Judea, a tradition in the heart of the city, and he is the one who aided the apprehension and death of Jesus. The celebration finishes on Friday 16:30 o'clock when Judas is hanged in the presence of more than 30 000 viewers. One of the most interesting detail are the masks used. In Mexican culture they still have a great importance in cultural activities. About 300 participants use them and are true works of art and it takes up to 6 months to be created due to the detail and quality, they can cost up to 1,500 dollars and the main masks are Judas, rancher, Oriental, The cheerful, Time and Devil's Mayor and Less. To get to La Purisima del Rincon, take the Highway 45 Irapuato call and passes by Aguascalientes and Guadalajara, this is 35 miles southwest of Leon.

Historical Monuments in Guanajuato
Mellado Temple
Mellado temple is not very well know because its removed from the historic center of this city, but it is beautiful. Its not featured in the guidebooks of Guanajuato. It dates back to the mid-eighteenth century. Recently, the neighbors set out to renovate it and its in good condition. Just in front of this temple is a garden of the same name, which I hope to write about in the future.
Of Cultural Interest in Irapuato
Irapuato Guanajuato in the city centre has very nice architecture. I liked the dancing fountain as well as the arches and the church's architecture. It's interesting to explore the cities of Bajio Mexico.

Tasty quesadillas and traditional food with a flavor that many restaurateurs are envious of.

Charco del Ingenio Botanical Garden
This isn't Culiacan, it's Guanajuato, but the system changes the direction. This is a place to relax and enjoy nature. It also takes care of the endemic species of the region, and especially those that are endangered. It's divided into terraces, as the geographical height of their origin. This is a place to relax and enjoy nature. Good care is also taken of the endemic species of the region, especially those that are endangered.
