Guanajuato

The cordial city of Guanajuato, declared Patrimony of the Humanity by UNESCO, and the "Ruta de las Minas" or Mines route, that cross-cuts its municipalities, and its scrumptious and honest gastronomy make this state an excellent destination which reunites mexican traditions along with novohispano culture. Just as bright in its underground lifestyle as in surface, Guanajuato at the present time and for almost 40 years, is the headquarters of some of the most important cultural samples in the world: The Cervantino International Festival.
