The University of Guanajuato is a centrally located building. We could not enter the building but climbing the long set of stairs offers a magnificent view.

Very nice building, you can’t miss the huge outside staircase. I recommend to also go inside and go up a couple of levels. 15 minutes and you can have a quick view of the history, classroom, cafeteria etc. In the main building is a small...More

The architecture is nice. There's not a lot of things to do at this building. You can climb the steps or take pictures.

It is a very beautiful building with too many stairs to climb. You would be happy with your picture there.

An iconic feature of Guanajuato that should be visited. I recognized the steps leading up to the university in a scene from the film “Once Upon A Time In Mexico”. If it was good enough for Antonio Banderas, it was good enough for me!

There are 2 entrances to the building; you can walk up the outdoor stairs or you can walk in through 2 other entrances on the ground floor (same side or around the corner). The outside architecture is gorgeous; the interior is nothing fancy or special,...More

It's worth walking up the beautiful limestone stairs from the street. Once you get to the top, ask reception about taking the tiny elevator to the "fourth floor," which is just down the hallway. From the 4th floor terrace, the view is spectacular!

It's a wonderful place to visit and study. The steps are part of the fun. Time to get into shape. Try the Pipila.
