I have only been to Mexico a few times in my life and I must say, I always seem to enjoy the beauty that it has to offer. This old abandoned house inside a small village reminds me of my travels as a young boy to Durango. This photo was taken in a village outside of Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico.
This is near the place where my mother-in-law grew up. The name of the town is San Bernardo. This town seemed to put you at peace. Even the old abandoned school – Elementary School Josefa Ortiz de Dominguez was almost scary but peaceful. By using Google Maps, you can now see that the town has been growing and even the village area seems to have Street Views. Give it a gander.
Today starts the week of Mexico Photos week, which I mentioned last week that it was a little late but better late than never. This week I plan to take you along on the trip that our family took when we last visited in December of 2004.
Today, I am going to share more than one photo with you because Guanajuato, Guanajuato, Mexico is probably one of the most beautiful places to see in Mexico. It has so much history and amazing architecture. The above photo is of the Basilica de Nuestra Señora de Guanajuato which is just one of the beautiful churches that Guanajuato has to offer.
The photo to the right is of another church just to the right of Teatro Juarez. Not sure what it is called but if you know and would like to share with us, please feel free.
Guanajuato has so many different places and things to see. It is full of history. According to a custom publication of the Fresno Bee that was published on September 8, 2010, Guanajuato, Guanajuato, Mexico is the 2nd top city next to Ciudad de Mexico. There is so many important history figures that have roamed the streets.
I want to thank The Cultured Traveler for some of their information on the buildings in Guanajuato, Guanajuato, Mexico. Visit their site to see all the information on the capital.
Stay tuned throughout the week to see more photos from Guanajuato, Mexico. I am even going to share something that might frighten you!
This is a photo of an alley from the city of Guanajuato, Guanajuato, Mexico. This photo is back from 2004 when my family went down to visit the beautiful area. This alley is very tiny though. I am not sure how many cars can fit through here but it is some amazing work that the city has to view. When we visited they were working on rebuilding the streets using stone by stone to give it that old fashioned look and feel.
