Sits on one of the main squares in central Guanajuato. Beautiful perspective of this charming city. Very ornate interior.

Basilica of Our Lady of Guanajuato is a stunning historic landmark. Inside is so beautiful from floor to ceiling. This is a must see for visitors. Mass is 7pm daily for church attendance. You can see this landmark which is in the historic district from a far distance. From the Pipila monument it stands out so beautifully for pictures of it¨s grandure.

On a very warm day, after our trolley tour was canceled, we decided to cool off in the basilica. Glass chandeliers, religious icons, crucifixes, which interested neither of us. What did was the christening of about 10 adorable babies, followed by a wedding. We participated in the wedding, we're given little sacks of rice to throw afterward, which we did. Interesting cultural experience and not uncommon.

Situated in the centre of Guanajuato on the Peace Plaza this is a very impressive building. It is used by locals and visitors as a place of worship. "Mother Mary" in pride of place denotes it as a Roman Catholic edifice. It is richly decorated.
