Typical courtyard in Guanajuato.

Find many like this near your downtown hotel like San Diego near the Juarez Theater.

Winding streets where one can almost reach out of the window on one side and touch someone on the terrace on the other.

Busses go to the museum The Mummies of Guanajuato where there are a number of naturally mummified bodies interred during a cholera outbreak around Guanajuato, during 1833.
These mummies were discovered in a cemetery located in Guanajuato, which has made this one of the biggest tourist attractions in Mexico.
All of these mummies were disinterred between 1865 and 1958, when the law required relatives to pay a tax in order to keep the bodies in the cemetery.
If the relatives could not pay this tax, they would lose the right to the burial place, and the dead bodies were disinterred.
Many bodies in the cemetery were disinterred because their relatives were too poor to pay the tax or used the money to go to soccer games.
Some of these bodies were naturally mummified due to the mineral content of the soil.
The mummified bodies were stored in a building and in the 1900s the mummies began attracting tourists.
Cemetery workers began charging people a few pesos to enter the building where mummies were stored.
This place was turned into a museum called El Museo De Las Momias, The Mummies' Museum.
