Declared both the Cervantes Capital of America and a UNESCO World Heritage City, you can only imagine the depth of Guanajuato's cultural side. Thanks in great part to the silver mined from deep within the surrounding hills, the steady rise of Guanajuato's wealth was accompanied by a rapidly unfolding cultural scene that continues to flourish today.

With jaw-dropping theaters, internationally renowned festivals and a host of one-of-a-kind museums, Guanajuato is undeniably one of Mexico's cultural hubs. Visitors can integrate themselves right into the city's cultural scene which, along with the ever-present museums and picturesque architecture, is constantly hopping with theater performances, cultural celebrations, international film screenings, special exhibits and more.
