“bad luck”(11 reviews)
This picturesque alley is so named because it is narrow enough for two lovers to kiss from opposite sides of the street.

Take your place in the line for an obligatory photo! Ok for a quick stop as you wander the beautiful town of Guanajuato as a pretty little street but not a show stopper.

This most famous of more than 3000 alleyways in this city is a tragic-romantic love story which has evolved into one of the attractions you can visit. If you do the "callejoneada" (fun evening attraction offered by university students), you end up here. By day,...More
