Beautiful university. You must climb the stairs for a picture. You can recognize the university from all over the city.

This is a great building that is best seen up close, as well as up from the Mirador with El Pipila. The flight of stairs are great fun to climb. I actually took some courses there once.

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.

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

went there with some friends, though we only sat on the steps, admire the beauty and took some pictures it sure was worth the walk on the burning sun!

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!

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