The State of Guanajuato is one of history, culture, architectural jewels, as well as warm and hospitable people. It is a State that shines in the heart of Mexico. Guanajuato Capital, historically and culturally, is one of the most important cities in Mexico. This rich heritage, combined with a unique atmosphere which permeates its imposing layout, captivates its visitors. Student minstrel groups merrily sing while meandering through plazas and narrow streets, while below ground, traffic flows through a subterranean tunnel system unlike any other in the world. Because of its beauty, its historical importance and its monuments, Guanajuato has been declared a “World Heritage Site” by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
