You will see this statue looming over the city from several spots below....but go up and see it! Learn about Pipila and how he helped Allende and Hidalgo! You can walk up the stairs or take the funicular!

Be here for the sunset, may be a little before so you can see the transition of the city. It's magical, by far the best views of the city and it's only a close tram ride from the main square.

Nothing else compares to the view of Guanajuato from the top. Meet people on the balcony. Souvenirs and snacks available for purchase.

Take the funicular for a quick visit to this important monument. But, apart from the monument, the best views of the city down below. Can walk down to the city if you’d like to stroll and take in more great views.

This was a great place to look over the entire city with a funicular to the lower zone. Lots of shopping in the area but not many restaurants

A beautiful view awaits, but the hike is a little steep. There are two access points from the center, mark “Subida a San Miguel” and a cable car. The monument is imposing. The hike is not suited for small children nor if you have knee...More

The monument is quite big; Really interesting story. But the cool stuff is actually the city view you get once you’re on the top. You can get there by using the “Funicular” which is like $25 MXN to go up and another $25 to go...More

I really don't know where it starts because we were given tickets by our B&B host (we stayed at Casa Zuniga) to ride the funicular. See my reviews on Casa Zuniga which is located on top of the hill with a beautiful view... More
