The funicular is a fun ride up and down, the monument itself is very attractive, but the real gem is the view of all of the city center. It's priceless!

If you pass by great, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it. Then again, I only drove by. That was enough to fulfill my needs.

Or simply, the enthusiasts can simply climb the small hillock using staircase as well. Once you are up there, you get a stunning view of Guanajuato city, which you cannot miss. Cost of funicular is 18 pesos one side... More

The title speaks for itself. As the way up might be a bit hard to find with all the different streets, but also because it is fun, it might be a good idea to take the 'train' up (which is located behind the theater). Definately walk down as it adds to the experience of walking through the narrow streets with... More

Take the tram, too much to walk, the view is worth every peso to take the tram. Take a lunch, not much to buy around this place for food, sit on a bench and enjoy the city of Guanajuato!!!!

It has an amazing view of the city in the day and a romantic view in the night. You can buy a round trip to go up there, once you're there you just can enjoy the view and take a relaxing moment. And you can buy some souvenirs if you want. Also there's a little bar up there so if... More
