“The historic center of Guanajuato has a distinct European flavor with hundreds of narrow cobblestone alleyways up and down the hillside. It is a great walking city with shady plazas dotted with sidewalk cafés, museums, theaters, markets and historic monuments. An underground network of tunnels runs beneath the city helping to control the flow of traffic. This charming colonial-era city situated in a picturesque valley surrounded by the Sierra de Guanajuato Mountains is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.” www.visitmexico.com/en/guanajuato
