This picturesque alley is so named because it is narrow enough for two lovers to kiss from opposite sides of the street.

We had a difficult time finding the Alley of the Kiss and then stumbled on it accidentally. Definitely a popular place.

This alley is akin to Romeo and Juliet only supposedly true. It has a real significance to people from Mexico so has cultural value. For a estadounidense like me it’s a cute little alley that gets very crowded with tourists.

It's a very narrow street, with mostly stairs, very steep. Beautiful balconies with flowers. Must visit in Guanajuato.

So the story of the alley is entirely fictional. All this is is an alley where two balconies got built so close to each other that you could kiss across them. Someone spotted a tourism opportunity and the Callejon del Beso was born. If you...More

I attended a musical street concert where the band takes the audience in a tour in the allies telling the story behind each one. It was really interesting when they took us to this alley and performed a role play to tell its story. They...More
