I don't think too many folks appreciate the giant statue of Pipila, but the view here is exceptional! Guanajuato is such a beautiful city! We took a taxi to the site and walked down through the alleyways of the historic city.

The history is important, but most go for a picture of the city below and on the opposite hill. Easy to get there and worth a stop.

The ticket office is located just behind Teatro Juarez, the window located either inside or outside for $3 purchase. Board the funicular and ascend to the cliff in a journey that takes about five minutes. The view is stunning – there are vendors at the...More

The hike up and back was fun. Recommend doing this at sunset. We didn't take the funicular but that's a good way to get up and then hike down.

Guanajuato is one of my favorite cities. The city has color and life. No evening was ever boring. And the view from the Monumento al Pipila was just the best. Just sitting and looking down the city was so relaxing. Go around evening and stay...More

You will see this statue looming over the city from several spots below....but go up and see it! Learn about Pipila and how he helped Allende and Hidalgo! You can walk up the stairs or take the funicular!

Be here for the sunset, may be a little before so you can see the transition of the city. It's magical, by far the best views of the city and it's only a close tram ride from the main square.

Nothing else compares to the view of Guanajuato from the top. Meet people on the balcony. Souvenirs and snacks available for purchase.

Take the funicular for a quick visit to this important monument. But, apart from the monument, the best views of the city down below. Can walk down to the city if you’d like to stroll and take in more great views.

I really don't know where it starts because we were given tickets by our B&B host (we stayed at Casa Zuniga) to ride the funicular. See my reviews on Casa Zuniga which is located on top of the hill with a beautiful view... More
