This railway runs just behind the Teatro Juarez and takes you up to the El Pipila Monument and provides excellent views of the city and of course a close up of El Pipila.

Go up the funicular gives you a beautiful view of Guanajuato below you. The streets run up and down the hills that make up the town and the buildings are painted pretty bright colours
