It's quick, fun and has a great payoff...superb views of the city. Sunset is prime time for a beautiful evening panorama. Worth the small price of admission.

Unless you want to climb up many, many stairs and possibly get lost doing it...take the funicular up for some. Great views. Walk down. The ride takes just a few minutes, very crowded on weekends, but no lines during the week. It only 25 pesos.

Nice, quick trip up and down to Pipila Monument and the best views of Guanajuato. Leaves pretty much continuously during operating hours.

Behind the theater in the main square, you take the short (and very non-scary) train up and get great view of the city and surrounding area.

I love funiculars and will ride them whenever I have a chance. This one saves you time and is panoramic. One option is to ride up and walk down or vv.

Best way to see the city. Cost was reasonable too. If walking it is a must as you have the ability to go up and see the view from Pipila without a car.

25 pesos up and it is worth it nice little trip up with great views over the city. If you walk down it is a nice little trek down with couple of stairs so would advise getting funicular up and walking back down
