We were here to the Guanajuato International Film Festival, this was one is the venues. When you visit Guanajuato, this building is a must. The view from above towards "El Pípila" is great.

It's a wonderful place to visit and study. The steps are part of the fun. Time to get into shape. Try the Pipila.
