Learn Spanish in Mexico: Guanajuato

Guadalajara

The city of Guanajuato, cradle of the Mexican independence, is an historical and picturesque town of agreeable little plazas, streets lined with stairs, houses of pastel-colored facades, balconies trimmed with iron work and flower-filled window boxes located about a five-hour drive northwest of Mexico City. The town is a maze of cobblestone streets and alleys that wind around steep hillsides upon a small ravine, opening into views of beautiful churches and small plazas.

The buildings among Guanajuato are stunning; there are grand mansions, beautiful churches and theatres which all serve as a reminder of the cities colonial past. This architecture also won the status of being a UNESCO World Heritage Site. However there is more to the city than buildings alone. It is also home to famous silver mines, a mummy museum, the Cervantino International Festival and some very interesting streets!  

One of these streets is so narrow that people would be able to kiss each other if they stood on opposing balconies. Another street in Guanajuato is entirely underground. In fact though much of Guanajuato’s charm comes from the relaxed atmosphere and welcoming residents. By studying Spanish in Guanajuato you will experience this colonial city at its best.
