  • Not really anything to see here. So many more interesting places in Guanajuato. Save you time and go exploring all the other colorful narrow alleys around town.  more »
  • This alley is known all over the world for the tradition. You must stand at the 7th step with your loved one and if you don't kiss you will have bad luck! A love story like Romeo and Juliet.  more »
