Took a trip to this incredible town in Mexico that dates back to the mid-1500s. An old mining town built missionary-style into a rugged valley well before cars and trucks. All the original streets and alleys are incompatible with wheeled transportation, so a vast series of tunnels were carved into the rock underneath. Made day trips to Cristo Rey (giant Jesus statue on a nearby mountaintop) and San Miguel de Allende. I found San Miguel to be very touristy with lots of expat Canadians and Americans everywhere, while Guanajuato was much more authentic. Anyway, here are a few sights and sounds from the trip.
