Callejonea en una cuatrimoto

Guanajuato’s alleyways are so numerous, and often so small, that cars can’t always access its every corner. You can walk, of course, but there is also the option of exploring the city with ease, on a quadbike. To do this, you must hire the services of the tourist agency Turismo Alternativo en Guanajuato. They offer tours that are two, three or even six hours long, depending on your chosen route. The longest routes reach as far as the Sierra de Santa Rosa and pass through several mining towns, whilst the shortest ones concentrate on the city’s streets, which have plenty of history for the more curious travelers.

So, on your quadbike, you can cruise along Calle Juárez (Juárez Street), pass by Jardín Reforma (Reforma Garden) and Mercado Hidalgo (Hidalgo Market), the 19th-century building that is now in the space that was once occupied by the bullfighting ring. You can also get to know the narrow Callejón del Beso (Kissing Alleyway) and the love story that could never be between Doña Ana and Don Carlos. You can cross the Plaza de la Paz (Peace Square), admire the green quarry stone facade of the Universidad de Guanajuato and soon afterwards the baroque entrance to the Templo de la Compañía. With a breeze on your face you can descend into the shadowy tunnels that crisscross beneath the city’s streets or go up to the top of the Cerro de San Miguel (San Miguel Hill), where the Monumento al Pípila looms above the city, surrounded by hills and mines.
