4.5/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web
Pay homage to a local hero at Monumento al Pipila, a statue honoring a young miner who distinguished himself during the Mexican War of Independence. The statue overlooks the city from one of the best vantage points you can find, so be sure to bring along a camera. The walk up to the monument may be too challenging for families with young kids and the elderly, who can take a taxi as an alternative. Near the monument, you'll find a gift shop and a bar with an equally spectacular view.

  • Another mandatory place to visit if you're in Guanajuato. His view is excellent! Can be seen throughout the city, the same design, alleys and houses so colorful, it is without a doubt a beautiful view... I would recommend although tired, they rise to it walking since that is when going to Guanajuato, touring the city walking... It climbs up the alley of the Kiss, and to go up you can go watching its architecture, the wonderful thing is this city... Without a doubt must go!

  • You got to visit this statue if you visit Guanajuato. The statue itself is fairly impressive but the real reason to come up is the views of the city.

  • If you want to view the city and appreciate its historical buildings and churches, this is definitely the place to go. It offers a panoramic view of the whole city. It's a great place to take photos!
  • Lovely place to visit, had so much fun with my family, and the view was spectacular, and dont get me started with the food!
  • The statue is a grand one for sure. However it's the view of the city that I will never forget. Being at one of the higher points you can see everything below for miles. There is a lot of open space to take photos or simply relax and look.
  • One of the best historical places you'll find in Guanajuato. The view, the photos and the story is fantastic. You have to.try the food , specially the corn they sell
