24 hours in Guanajuato

Almost smack bang in the geographic centre of Mexico sits the city of Guanajuato, nestled among canyons of the central highlands. Founded by the Spanish in 1559 due to extensive silver deposits the town quickly became very wealthy – evident by the abundance of fine colonial architecture. Now a city and a UNESCO World Heritage site Guanajuato is a awesome place to explore, with its unique network of sub-city traffic tunnels, jigsaw puzzle apartments and narrow cobbled streets.

Here’s a few photos…
