Absolutely stunning on the inside... was open every time we walked by. It is located in the center of everything, just a short walk away from Teatro Juarez.

This basilica is really beautiful and it is a must-see in Guanajuato. Walk around the downtown and don't forget to stop here and take a look inside, since it has amazing architecture inside too.

This basilica is one of the most beautiful that I have seen in Mexico. Its decoration inside is subtle, but elegant. It is a peaceful break from all your walking around the city.

Even if you don't go inside, everybody hangs outside by the fountain plaza or at the nearby outdoors cafe's, taking selfies in front of the Basilica of our Lady of Guanajuato. At night time it's the center's most illuminated view especially from the Pipila statue.
