This basilica is one of the most beautiful that I have seen in Mexico. Its decoration inside is subtle, but elegant. It is a peaceful break from all your walking around the city.

Even if you don't go inside, everybody hangs outside by the fountain plaza or at the nearby outdoors cafe's, taking selfies in front of the Basilica of our Lady of Guanajuato. At night time it's the center's most illuminated view especially from the Pipila statue.

This is another beautiful and historic church. It has been well kept and you can visit for free. (Donations are accepted) if you want to take pictures make sure you turn off your flash.

Amazing place to visit. It feels as if you are in Europe. The building and architectural structures are overwhelmingly amazing. A camera is unable to capture its beauty.
