Romantic Place to stay in Guanajuato?

by spmuzik

Hello

I am looking for a romantic studio/apt/hotel room in Guanajuato for two nights (Fri, Sat October 26 and 27).

Something near the center of town. A great view is a HUGE plus. If anyone has any suggestions or anything available, please let me know. Also, any suggestions for restuarants. Thanks!

Steven

I found this place:

We decided to stay in SMA instead, so I haven't personally stayed there. Perhaps find other opinions on Tripadvisor.com.

Travel Tips for Guanajuato

by Ronald_T

Visit the Plaza de la Paz. The gently sloping “Peace Plaza” is triangular is shape one of the city’s oldest plazas. It is located in front of the Basilica of Our Lady of Guanajuato (see further). The Plaza has been through numerous of changes over the centuries. Nowadays it boasts a beautiful bronze statue (see further) by Jesús F. Contreras, dedicated to Peace (1898), as well as beautiful flowerbeds. The plaza itself is lined with the city’s most beautiful palaces and townhouses.

The Town of Mellado

by pencho15

the unplanned visit to Mina Rayas led to another discovery, when we were about to return to the car and drive back to the city I saw a sign that said Mellado and it had an arrow pointing to some stairs going way up. Being as curious as I am I promptly decided to walk that way and to find out what was Mellado. The answer is that Mellador refered to a small town whose complete name is Mineral de Mellado and wich, as in all the world, has been swallowed by the growth of the big city that once was it's neighbor.
But despite the fact that today it is no longer considered a town but a part of the city of Guanajuato, the geography of the zone results in Mellado being isolated from the rest of Guanajuato, after I finished walking up the stairs and I entered the town I felt as if I was walking into a complete different place, Mellado has the quiet and peace impossible to find in big cities, and as I walked it's streets I could hear roosters crowing and absolutely no cars, in fact on my short visit I only crossed another person in the town, a nice man who with the friendliness you only find on this small places welcomed me with a smile.
The town is actually very nice, it is a place founded in colonial times and at least on the zone I was in it remains mostly unchanged so I felt it as a trip back in time, it is a great chance to now a typical mexican town without it being invaded by tourists.
The main building I saw is the old convent that also dates back to colonial times ad it has a nice facade, unfortunately I couldn't see it inside since it was closed when I was there and since my family was waiting for me I didn't had time to wait for it to be opened or ask someone for the key, I'll do it next time I visit Guanajuato.
Also and this on the legends department there was a plaque saying that this is the place were el Pípila, the miner who opened the doors of the alhondiga for the rebel army that sought the independence of Mexico, was born here.

Worship the Cult of the Dead

by Jetgirly

When you buy your tickets to the Mummy Museum, you'll have the option of paying more or less another dollar to check out the "Room of the Cult of the Dead". Much like the "Chamber of Horrors" at your average wax museum, this is a bizarre collection of everything relating to death. Exhibits run the gamut from an animatronic Grim Reaper to what is supposedly an aborted fetus (see my lovely photo) to holographs that will give your kids nightmares for years to come. It's tacky, but it's only a dollar and you can be in and out in ten minutes... if you've already paid for the Mummy Museum you may as well check it out too.

Best Museum in town

by jonbarb709

There are several museums in town, but the Museo Iconografico del Quijote, (Don Quixote) was fantastic. Don Quioxite is a favorite subject of a large number of artists and they are all here. This is a fantastic collection of art based on Don Quixote. The museum is spotless, the cleanest one we have ever been in. The bathroom is excellent. The price to go in - free. A must stop. There are paintings, murals, and sculptures. Unbelievable array of Don Quixote.

The Alhondiga

by jungles

The Alhondiga was the city grainery of Guanajuato, and it was the scene of a very important battle in the early days of the Mexican revolution. In September 1810 Padre Hidalgo and his army of 80,000 peasant supporters attacked the city of Guanajuato. The Spanish retreated into the Alhondiga. Hidalgo's untrained men, many of them armed only with mining tools, began hurling rocks at the Alhondiga. Many indentations caused by these rocks are clearly visible on the outside of the building today. With the Spanish pouring boiling water from the windows down onto the revolutionaries, the situation for Hidalgo's men looked hopeless.

If local folklore is to be believed (the authenticity of this story is debated), the turning point came when a young miner nicknamed El Pipila (The Turkeycock) tied a slab of stone to his back to protect himself, grabbed a burning torch, stumbled to the wooden gates and set them alight. El Pipila was killed in the process, but his actions enabled Hidalgo's men to storm the building, massacre the Spaniards and capture the city.

Six months later Hidalgo was captured and killed, and his head was hung in a cage from a corner of the building for all to see, a reminder to the people of the dangers of disobedience. From the other three corners hung the heads of three more revolutionaries - Ignacio Allende, Juan Alolama and Mario Jimenez. They would remain there for ten more years until independence was achieved.

The Alhondiga is now open to the public as a museum and has lots of interesting exhibits related to the revolution inside. I don't have any photos of the building, so these two murals are artistic representations of the Alhondiga battle and of Hidalgo's head displayed in the cage. These murals are in the independence museum in the town of Dolores Hidalgo (see my Dolores Hidalgo page for more info). The statue of El Pipila is on top of a hill with a great view of the city. For two pesos you can even climb inside the statue all the way up to El Pipila's shoulder.
