This picturesque alley is so named because it is narrow enough for two lovers to kiss from opposite sides of the street.

Of course we HAD to kiss on the third step!!! Interesting, heart touching legend. This was just a fun thing to do. The callejon (alley) is quite picturesque as well - good photo op!

This place is good for a photograph, there is a short wait and it is a very well known attraction of Guanajuato. Personally, I think there are more important things to see in the area so if you need to prioritize then check out somewhere...More

If you're in the area - take a peek, but don't go out of your way. A great big yawn! The area around it is full of tourist traps, and the alley itself.... well, there are other more interesting things to see in GTO

We had extra time before heading to the airport so we walked here just because. If my feet were tired or it was hot or raining I wouldn't bother. There are plenty of equally scenic/interesting alleys to explore.

This is close to the Mercado Hidalgo but not nearly as fun. Honestly, I didn't even realize I was there until I noticed the group of people snapping pics of this dark and narrow alley. I don't know how to say Meh in Spanish.

Awesome street, great story and you can get awesome souvenirs for a great deal! You can find anything there from ashtrays to shirts, bags,mugs and these cute flower crowns they make and you won't beat the value.

Nothing much wait in line for your turn to do the little package or head straight in, Into the shop to the right of the alleyway. There is a staircase to the left. Go up, to leave they will advise to take another staircase... More
