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

Sweet little alley

This was a very narrow alley where people have placed "locks" etc. We saw this at the end of one of the delightful callejondas performed by university students.

Loved this little street, you feel transported into another era, and it is very fun to take a picutre with your loved one kissing. It's a MUST!

It's a cute street with a true Romeo/Juliet story. We took some pictures. It was interesting. It doesn't take long to see. You can climb up to the balcony and get a closer look.

There is nothing special about the Callejon del Beso it is simply a small callejon with an interesting legend, it can take a while to find it if you dont go with a guide but its worth the walk at least to say you have been there and to listen to the dramatic legend involving the callejon del beso.

Our tour guide told us the story of the kissing alley and said it was a must. It's a very small alley with a romantic and tragic ending. It only takes a few minutes and it is worth the time to get a quick picture and enjoy the quaint little walk.

A bit of Romeo and Juliet. You can go onto one of the balconies free of charge ujp a steep winding spiral staircase. Look for the padlocks!

It's a tiny, narrow alley that is known as a place to give your sweety a kiss. There are usually others waiting to get the kiss picture so we had to wait 5 minutes.

It was hard to find. I was with a friend so no kissing once we got there. But we really enjoyed the walk and the pebbled streets.

Just wander around the back alleys and get lost and enjoy. This was not worth your while. Really it just seems like an excuse to squeeze a few pesos out of tourists...

We were trying to follow our map but got a tiny bit lost, which we find has more benefits than you think. I asked a local (well in my pointing to the map and sign language of a tourist) where this street was. He kindly left his group of friends and walked us to the alley.
