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

A nice thing to see while you're out strolling.

I'm glad we saw this attraction, but I wouldn't go so far as other reviewers who claim that this is something you absolutely should not miss. It's a novelty to see such a narrow... read more

It's interesting that this place has become a tourist site. Yes, the love story pulls the crowd, but really you are just looking at two balconies "kissing" close together. It's free and near the market.

Located on a narrow Guanajuato street you pose for a kiss with your loved one while a 'volunteer' freezes the moment with a picture for a modest donation.

This is a very typical place to visit while you are walking in Guanajuato. Once you arrive, you will see a lot of people offering a short story on the Callejon del Beso. Although it is very likely that this story is full of false details, it is funny. You can give them 10 pesos for the story and for... More

I'm glad we saw this attraction, but I wouldn't go so far as other reviewers who claim that this is something you absolutely should not miss. It's a novelty to see such a narrow alleyway, one that would allow people on opposite sides to kiss while on their balconies, but that's the extent of it.

If you like legends and stories, you will love Guanajuato, and this legend about a this lady killed by her dad is one of the most famous legends Guanajuato has, you have to go to the callejon and give a kiss to your person and have good luck forever.

The legend makes this place so romantic. You cannot miss this place when you travel to Guanajuato. It is a must!

I strongly recommend a Callejoneada where a Estudiantina will tour you around some alleys, serenade, tell legends and make you laugj.

The history has a tragic ending, but the meaning of forbidden love, may bring better luck to those of us who seal our love with a kiss.

Guanajuato has many small syreets and narrow alleys but El Callejon del Beso is by far the narrowest alley in Guanajuato. The Alley of the Kiss is famous thanks to its tragic love story. Not a must see, but if you have the time and curious about the legend. Not a lot to see, just a quick visit to take... More

We shared a kiss in the kissing alley. Our tour guide told us the story of star crossed lovers who kissed across the balconies according to the legend.
