Lots of nice callejons, this one is not so special. But there is a really great barber shop on the other side of the plaza next to the bank!!

This is definitely a Tourist Trap if I have ever seen one! It is worth maybe a brief pass by ... but the small alley tends to get crowded with tourists as it is written up in almost every local tourist guide. Also I am not sure if there is any veracity to the legend that the City claims created... More

This place is just overrated. But there's no harm to visit this place. It's one of the Guanajuato experience.

I went with my mother, sisters and nieces. We went at night with a group of musicians (Estudiantinas) and they sing all around the town, you follow them and they tell you all the Legends of the town. (The alley of the kiss has a story) It was fun!! They are called Callejoneadas.

Nice, romantic little alley, well worth a stop if you happen to be around. Or a nice goal for a trip with your better half.
