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

I feel Alley of the Kiss was pretty but not very exciting! I might not know the history or stories that surround this alley, but I stumbled upon so many alleys around Guanajuato and they were all pretty! I came here early at like 8:30 am and we were the only ones here, so I recommend coming on an off... More

I'm not sure what we expected but this much visited alleyway was smelly and dirty...in a city where there is a photo op around every corner, sadly this was not one of them!

Wandering round this beautiful town is a joy there are lots of narrow streets. There is a touristy legend about kissing on this one but it's not any more delightful than the other streets. You should need an excuse to kiss your partner in a narrow alleyway if your that way inclined and you won't have missed anything if you... More

The best way to explore Guanajuato city is to walk through its historic alleys, every bit rich with history. The Alley of the kiss is a popular landmark and if you pay a bit you can kiss there too...

What an enjoyable site. A must when you visit this beautiful colonial town of Guanajuato, Mx. One of my favorite places to take the couples that join us in our vacations. Just love the tradition!!!

If visiting Guanajuato, you have to visit the El Callejon del Beso and of course have a kiss on the third step of the stairwell. We visited it during the night with the Callejoneada walk. It was nice, but a little crowded. Make sure to take a picture to prove you were there! LOL

If you go to Guanajuato, you must go to "alley of the kiss". This is a beautiful narrow alley where you have to kiss your love one. Walk in Guanajuato is one of the best experience to know and feel part of the Mexican history.

This is a family tour but is also kinda romantic. The girls like it and the music tour thru the small back alley streets are cool and you get some amazing views of the city at night. This tour is unique to the capital city of GTO.
