Parroquia de Basilica Colegiata de Nuestra Senora de Guanajuato
#1 of 34 Sights & Landmarks in Guanajuato
The view from here is breathtaking as you look out on cathedrals, the famous Teatro, and the multi-colored homes that for the mountainside.
I recommend coming into the city of Guanajuato during the day and staying to see the sites in the evening so you get to experience the best of both worlds.

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.
