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

Easy to find Alley of the Kiss

Everyone knows where the Alley is. You also can just follow groups of tourists. It is worth a visit but will only take approx ten minutes to view the closeness of the balcony.

It's cute, but only takes a minute or two to check out as you are passing by. I wouldn't go way out of my way to see it... It looks exactly like the photos and artwork that can be found in the local shops and markets.

This is a a very narrow alley where all tourist parties stop by to listen to the love story of a young girl and her loved one whose relationship was forbidden by her father due to the boy's poor status (have we heard that before??). The place is curious in itself as the balconies of both sides of the alley... More

It is a must when in Guanajuato, locals will tell you about the legend of the kiss, for a tip. You can climb to the balcony for free and took pics, there's a gift shop in the place.

My girlfriend and I went to Callejón del Beso to kiss on the appropriate step. Legend says that a kiss on this step guarantees something like seven more years of love. It's something fun to do with your partner.

You can walk by this anytime and it is really nothing more than a small alley. However what makes it delightful is to do the evening tour with the singing troubadours who will sing and act out the story behind the alley. You will go on a lovely walk, meet new people, laugh and sing. It's all in Spanish so... More

Loved the romantic history, that led to the serenades. The young men singing at night in front of the church is not to be missed.
