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

If you have time, try to check out this balcony in the narrow alley. It's around the corner from Cantera candy store. Some people will try to sell you a 'tour' of it or a picture but it's free so you can take your own and read about the history of it yourself - or you can tip them a... More

Find out one of the most famous legends in Gto!, you are able to take pics in here and the story (if you don't know it) there will be plenty of persons who offers themselves to tell you for a couple of pesos and in the nighttime it's very lovely

it was great, the rondalla ( musical group) tells you all about city legends and stories while you are walking through the city alleys with the music, really fun and a must do!

The history is very good, but you need to hire one of the story tellers to have a much better experience.

It is a very pretty alley and it is a traditional thing in Guanajuato, but it is a quick visit. Mind the facebook addicts waiting to take selfies and profile pictures.

We heard a few people talk about the alley and of course, we wanted to stop by. It is very touristy, as a man with a camera is ready to get a picture of your kiss. We made it quick and moved on to the next destination.

This is a must do just so you can say you've been there. This just few blocks from the center of the city. Expect it to be crowded with couples awaiting to kiss at the steps if this alley. Be patient. We waited about 10 minutes but it was nice to watch other folks too. You'll wsee people from all... More

It's the site of a the local Romeo-and-Juliet-like legend. Something to cross off your list of "things to see in Guanajuato." I spent more time looking for it than being there. I wasn't disappointed but I didn't find it all too thrilling either.

One of Guanajuatos many legends, and not the most interesting one. After all, it's just another ordinary alley and a sort of second-class imitation of Juliet's balcony in Verona.
