Guanajuato : Michelin's recommendations
Guanajuato is a superb town nestled in the heart of a region that grew rich due to its extraordinary deposits of gold, silver and copper. It is a student town full of energy and cultural activity; the architecture is remarkable, boasting colonial buildings and colourful houses; it has an active theatre community thanks to the emblematic Cervantino festival (in October); and it is great for walking thanks to its underpasses that absorb the flow of traffic. Don’t miss the panoramic view from on top of the Monumento al Pípila.
