“Beautiful Building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2012

Building is beautiful in Moorish style. Saw students sitting and sketching in courtyard. Seemed like a wonderful atmosphere to study.

“Better than you think!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

OK, so this doesn't sound very exciting, but it is worth walking past the State University for the architecture which is spectacular. Not sure if you can actually get in - we did not try as it was not THAT exciting!

“Stands out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

While walking around this fantastic city you will most likely pass this building. Everyone who passes through seems to stop to take a picture, I did.

“Fantastic old building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

We just passed by the front of the old university on the main street. It has a huge stone staircase, and it's not to be missed on a walk around the Centro.

“Outstanding! I wish I had study there”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

When one thinks about university, you usually think about big buildings made of grey blocks and nothing special upon them besides knowledge. Yet, the Universidad de Guanajuato, GTO is not like that.
The moment you see it, you won't believe it is a University, since it looks more like an ancient castle or an old church. Made long time ago, this place welcomes its students with an impressive view which will make you wish you were a college student again.
