  • We came upon this little alley and I am very glad we did! The story behind the alley is very cute and there is a little shop above the alley that you must go up to see! The view from there is very cut...  more »

  • There's a story to it. The name says it all. It's a small alley space where everyone and their other half wait in line to kiss and take a pic.  more »

  • It's cute and romantic. A must stop when you're visiting this beautiful city. It gets crowded and the alley way is extremely narrow but totally worth it! We didn't get lured into the house and up to the balcony but I'm sure its enjoyable. Theres an iron window gate where people put their "love locks", so if you don't have one, you can purchase it from a vendor there. Don't forget to get your photo op on the 3rd step with your SO! :)
  • A regular alley turned into a touristic hangout over a colonial legend. Only a must if you're into the cheesiest side of romance.
  • This single alley, whatever - but arriving here, with my wife, as part of a "Callejonada" - priceless. Walked and sang and laughed with the "Estudiantinas" and the other tourists. HIGHLY reccomend that you go with your significant other. Wear comfortable shoes, bring something to drink.
  • This is the TOP & most popular place to visit at Guanajuato. You must have to bring your girl into this place & kiss her. TOTALLY RECOMMENDED!!!
  • Very romantic story about the alley, watch out with the street vendors, they will push you heavily to make you buy something from them.
