  • Our first destination: the Museum Iconographer of Quixote ($30 MXN or about 2$ CAD). A wonder of Museum with several dozens of paintings and sculptures of the hero of Cervantes in a beautiful colonial building from the 18th century. A blow-heart. Besides, the city of Guanajuato boasts the title of city of Cervantes in America, which explains why you can find everywhere from sculptures of Don Quixote in the city. Besides, the city organizes annually a theatre festival that bears his name.

  • The Museum is beautiful but it is a pity that the guides are not informed. We had a girl who spoke low and did not know where Miguel de Cervantes was born. Of penalty.
