This is an iconic spot you can't miss while in the city. On top of that it's a great workout. Try getting up for sunrise for an amazing light and serene vibe. (I was 1 of 4 people there at sunrise).

The story of El Pípila is charming, even if exaggerated somewhat. The monument to his him and his heroic deed is altogether fitting to the man's courage. Pípila is one of the great actors in the revolution to free Mexico from the cruel rule of exploitative colonial overlords. Once you have seen the Pípila statue and taken the obligatory pictures, turn around. Before you is Guanajuato, spread across an undulating valley floor like a Mexican painting, bursting with color and texture. The view from here is spectacular. Don't miss it.

The view is so extraordinary that El Pipila gets overshadowed by it all. He was instrumental in helping Hidalgo fight for freedom from the Spanish. Thus he is honored with this monument. We were brought up here by a tour bus so we were able to walk to this overlook and then take the funicular down into the city. Guanajuato is truly Mexico's most beautiful city and the pictures taken from up here look just like postcards.

I would say this is a must see in Guanajuato because of the awesome views of the city. The area itself had nothing else that interested us, but we visited three different times during our stay at different times of the day, to appreciate the views. The walk up was interesting and the alleys are fun and colorful, but steep.

Don't miss this spot! Th easiest way to get to the Monument is to take the funicular from Jardin de la Union (about a block away) to the top. The view from the area around the top of the funicular offers a spectacular 180 degree view of the Guanajuato valley, with colorful houses stepping up the hillsides. The funicular is 36 pesos each way (you can ride up and walk down, like me, or ride both ways). You can then climb to the top of the Pipila statue for an additional 7 pesos or so, which makes the view even better. There are some vendor stands selling snacks and trinkets, similar to what you'll find elsewhere in GTO. I spent a good hour up there and really enjoyed it.
