This was one of several places I had the opportunity to visit on one of my trips to Guanajuato. It's worth the time it takes to locate it once you're there. The story is interesting. It's a tight fit, lol. I just wish I had been there with someone I could have shared a smooch. Oh well....next time I guess.

A little hard to find, on the right of the Santa Cartrina dulceria and up the street then turn to your left. A tourist spot with a Romeo Juliet story behind it. Eventually the young lover did commit suicide we were told. Plenty of locals around to take your picture on the red step and share the history. There's a... More

A nice little diversion on a walking tour of the city. My husband of 47 years and I had to participate in the ritual...why not?

This place isn't a must, but it was fun to find (with the help of the locals, of course). Be warned that it is a very, very narrow passageway. The locals on the path were friendly, and nice enough to allow us to climb to one of the two balconies from where you would share a kiss with your neighbor... More

It's a quaint turn in the alleyway where two teenagers allegedly shared a forbidden kiss between balconies. That's it, however. One step is painted red where you get your photo taken kissing that special someone. A nice to do, not a must do.

An interesting background story and part of the charm of the town. Fun as part of a walk around Guanajuato, but not a do not miss for a special journey

A fun place where you will meet every single tourist - but still fun if you have the place for your own
