This is about a 15 minute drive outside the city. You can tell they are on a shoe string but that's just one more reason to give them your support; the area depends on tourists coming to see their restored mine. And judging from the "before" photos, they did a really good job restoring this place. Be warned, at the... More

You'll never understand the history of Guanajuato unless you take a trip to the mining museum (ideally with a tour guide) and grasp how the economy and local industry of not only Guanajuato, but also Mexico came to be through the mining of gold and silver. The museum store is also a great stop to buy creative jewelry for the... More

This is a must see in the city. You get to see how silver was brought up plus you get to go down into the mine.

The mine is interesting to see, but not having enough Spanish to understand the guide's explanations was a definite disadvantage. There are few fluent English speakers here, but we did find one to take us on the city tour. Augustino was excellent in English.

A world within a world. Gardens of every type, and stately villa. History buffs heaven. At least a two hour visit, and there's a little drink bar to help you out when you get tired and thirsty. Worth the time.

You can see two mines in the same area, this one and San Cayetano. When we arrived it was pouring rain so we had to wait to enter the mine. We basically had a private tour since there was no one else due to the rain. The price for the entrance is very inexpensive. Expect to walk a lot of... More
