Guanajuato

Granary of the Republic

With well over a third of its area suitable for agriculture, Guanajuato remains the "Granary of the Republic" as a major producer of corn, beans, sorghum, barley, and wheat. A tour of Guanajuato allows you to trace the "Bicentennial Route," originally followed by an insurgent army led by Miguel Hidalgo, one of the leaders of Mexican struggle for independence. Other popular things to do in Guanajuato include exploring historical haciendas and mines, attending local festivals, and visiting the state's thriving cities. Start in the World Heritage-listed eponymous capital, known for its cobblestoned streets, pleasant plazas, and unusual underground roadways. Guanajuato is in Central Mexico and Gulf Coast.
