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

Beautiful!

Beautiful but over crowded if you wait to visit late. Your best bet is to visit early or you will be in line to kiss your sweetheart!

Maybe if you are young and in love you might find this appealing. I thought it was just ok. Lots of people and very crowded. It's difficult to take good pictures do to all the people. I wouldn't go back but if you are strolling the city it isn't out of the way if you want to take a look.

Nothing special about it, other than it is a famous attraction. Stop by, give your significant other a kiss and enjoy the area.

Very unique place with an interesting love story but you need to be a mountain goat to navigate these streets. Bring walking poles with you for this visit.

This was a wonderful experience even for my initially reluctant teenagers. Full of songs and legends and romantic at the same time. Would recommend for everyone! Bring comfy shoes! It's a good walking and stair climbing tour.

Stuff of legend, litteraly. This is the birthplace of the popular legend called by many the romeo and juliette of america. Arrive early to avoid the crowds.

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
