This cathedral is quite simple, compared to the cathedrals of Zacatecas, Morelia an Puebla, but it yellow color make it visible since any high point of the city, it is a remarkable reference point and an ordinary temple.

Beautiful church in the center of Guanajuato heart. I went to a family wedding but looking at the inside it is really beautiful and impressive.

I was in the city for meetings and went to a Lenten service one evening. They were saying the rosary. The Basilica is beautiful and I'm very glad I went.

This is the biggest and more frequented church in the middle of town, always busy with locals and tourists. It is hard to miss because of its location, the size and the unique orange color. The architecture is quite unique and the styles are different,...More

All of the Churches we stopped in while in Guanajuato and the surrounding areas were beautiful and have been well maintained. It's amazing that the area itself is so old and there is so much to see and do.

We hoped for a short visit with the priest. Although Mass started in less than half an hour, he took a few minutes after the scheduled start of Mass to be with us. He was kind and gracious.

This Basilica is close to the center of the downtown area. There are always activities and street events happening around the Basiclia.

We are headed to Guanajuato Nov. 30.. It looks like it may be a tad chilly No? I'll pack my down vest.. Our question is - We love local food and the energy of the places that have a real Vibe "Onda" to them.. Recommendations for great restaurants to explore? Hidden treasures? We are staying at Casa de Pepila. Dermot the owner from Ireland.. Have heard great reviews.. We are also interested in purchasing real estate ( post election it holds more appeal as a respit ).. Realtors you might recommend to talk with?.. Looking SO forward to our trip.
