This is the reason why couples traditionally kiss each other on the third step, to be guaranteed years of happiness! Stroll along the historic completely pedestrian streets of the Old Town, a labyrinth of walkable streets and elaborate network of subterranean streets. The Old Town is also home to the 17th-century Basílica de Nuestra Señora de Guanajuato, a striking yellow church that sits on a small hill and dominates the Plaza de la Paz. From there, head to the one of the most popular places to visit in Guanajuato, to live a thrilling experience at the Mummy Museum, with 100 well-preserved mummies.
