“Outstanding! I wish I had study there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

When one thinks about university, you usually think about big buildings made of grey blocks and nothing special upon them besides knowledge. Yet, the Universidad de Guanajuato, GTO is not like that.
The moment you see it, you won't believe it is a University, since it looks more like an ancient castle or an old church. Made long time ago, this place welcomes its students with an impressive view which will make you wish you were a college student again.

“Beautiful old university”

Climb its steps and you will get a great view of the city. On week days you can enter the campus and watch its old buildings.

“I Wish I Went to a School That Looked like This!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

Visit the university for its architecture alone!! It stand out against the colonial examples prevalent in the city and shows Guanajuato's modern side. A gorgeous building.
