Colorful hilltop buildings in Guanajuato Mexico
There are a lot of colors in Guanajuato Mexico. Some even say that this is the most beautiful city in the country. I don’t know if it’s the most beautiful, but it is nevertheless on the top of the list 🙂
What makes this city stand apart, are the hills covered by lots of colorful buildings and houses. You can see them from no matter where you are.
This is a vertical shot of the same hill in Guanajuato..
As a mining town/city, the area is surrounded by hills, which in time were populated mainly by working class residencies. We stayed almost on the top of this hill in a beautiful house of a former mining engineer.
Without doubt, Mexicans like colors…. and Guanajuato proves it!.
On the hills around there is a mix of architecture – typical Mexican, but the overall look is definitely colored 🙂
* I have more photos on the city’s downtown, but in this post I will stick with the colorful hilltop buildings in Guanajuato Mexico. In this shot you can see some of them taken from the lower level of the city. In this area, the houses have a more superior level of maintenance than in the upper area of the city. It is obviously, on one of the main streets going downtown.
Some of these colorful hilltop buildings in the city are basic, even deteriorated, but some are rich and full of history. Guanajuato is a UNESCO World Heritage Site
Here is a view of the historic downtown, taken from one of the hills. From up above you can see some splendid panoramas of the city. Here for instance, you can notice the central Basilica, the University of Guanajuato (white), and the main street in-between the two most prominent buildings.
All the colorful hilltop buildings in Guanajuato, Mexico shown in this post are available as art prints at Fine Art America. Just click on them and you can have prints on various sizes, types and prices for your home decor and more.. You can see them all in my Guanajuato collection.
