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

It's an alley. That's pretty much it. But when you're standing there, it only makes you imagine the life that made the story of it being the alley of the kiss, where two lovers forbidden by their parents, sneaked kisses across the alley. And the walk to reach this alley only adds to the incredible charm of this hilly, cobble-stoned... More

There really isnt a town like Guanajuato in North, Central and South America and its another example of why Mexico is such a great country with more to offer than Cancun and Acapulco. There are so many lovely streets to wander around in especially the roads that are underground and make one feel like one is in East London during... More

Legend has it that two lovers were being kept apart by feuding families. Love won anyway when they found they could kiss by each standing on their balconies which faced each other across the street. You can just picture it when you see the balconies. Cute!

I was out walking around today and with the maze like streets of Guanajuato, you never know what's around the next corner. It's absolutely charming. It's free to take your own picture and you exit through a no pressure shop. Next time I'll bring my amor for a kiss. Well worth the trip.

It's cute, especially if you're travelling with a romantic partner. Mexican Romeo and Juliet story. Nothing more. Same story as many other places have. But, what the heck, you're contributing to local business and won't take much of your time.

We were enjoying a walk around Guanajuato and happened to be passing by as a couple leaned in for a kiss, to the joy of all below. Sadly, my love was not with me on this day, so I blew him a kiss in a photo by the monument sign "Callejon del Beso". If he were with me, I would... More

Indeed one could kiss from our window to the person standing in her window in this lovely alley. It's fun to find the place, try the act and listen the story behind this lovely alley from the street kids. Besame mucho!

This is located steps away from one of the main squares, Plaza de La Paz. It is free to visit, take pics, and climb the steps to look out/take pics from the balcony. Bring someone to kiss. Enjoy Guanajuato!

It can be kind of romantic if you want it to be. Besides the photographers that want to take pictures and artists wanting to draw you, i enjoyed the visit to the alley.
