The Tunnels of Guanajuato
Moving through the town of Guanajuato is like being a rabbit running through a warren.

In 1883 began the construction of the project that promised to remedy that setback: the tunnels.
The first tunnel that is finished for this purpose is the known as "el cuajín", which connects from the hacienda of san agustín to the market of ambassadors. Subsequently, due to the constant growth of the population and the vehicle park, it was necessary to vent traffic somewhere. Curiously were these same tunnels the solution to the second problem that emerged with the passage of time.
The Underground Street of guanajuato is perhaps one of the most impressive architectural jewels of all Latin America, years ago the so-called river guanajuato ran below the city and often was the culprit of serious floods so in the mid-th century engineers decided Prosecute the water towards underground caverns and so was born the one we know today as Miguel Hidalgo Street.
In the th century there were four camps for the discovery of silver veins: Santa Ana, Santa Fe, tepetapa and Santiago De Ivory. Years later, the haciendas of pardo, Salgado, cervera, Alonso, Duarte, Sebastián Rodriguez, San Juan de jasso and biscuit were built, which mainly occupied the cañada.
Between the th and th centuries, urban growth began to reach the river river, so there was a time when it was reduced, even some people had to lift boxes in their homes, i.e. raise the level to avoid flooding.
En 1883 comenzó la construcción del proyecto que prometía remediar dicho contratiempo: los túneles.
El primer túnel que se terminó para este propósito es el conocido como "El Cuajín", que conecta desde la Hacienda de San Agustín hasta el Mercado de Embajadoras. Posteriormente, debido al crecimiento constante de la población y el parque vehicular, se hizo necesario desahogar el tráfico por algún lugar. Curiosamente fueron estos mismos túneles la solución al segundo problema que surgió con el paso del tiempo.
La Calle Subterránea de Guanajuato es tal vez una de las joyas arquitectónicas más impresionantes de todo Latinoamérica, años atrás el llamado Río Guanajuato corría por debajo de la ciudad y a menudo era el culpable de serias inundaciones por lo que a mediados del siglo XX ingenieros decidieron encausar el agua hacia cavernas subterráneas y así nació la que hoy conocemos como la Calle Miguel Hidalgo.
En el siglo XVI había cuatro campamentos por el descubrimiento de las vetas de plata: Santa Ana, Santa Fe, Tepetapa y Santiago de Marfil. Años después se construyeron las Haciendas de Pardo, Salgado, Cervera, Alonso, Duarte, Sebastián Rodríguez, San Juan de Jasso y Pastita, las cuales ocuparon principalmente la cañada.
Entre los siglos XVI y XIX comenzó el crecimiento urbano hasta llegar al cauce del río, por lo que hubo un momento en que se redujo, incluso algunas personas tuvieron que levantar cajas en sus viviendas, es decir subir el nivel para evitar inundaciones.

Enjoy an amazing view of Guanajuato and just a 20 min walk down hill into the centro.
This place is a work of art. Every little detail is both aesthetically pleasing & physically comfortable. I stayed on the top floor & had an INCREDIBLE view of the city & surrounding mountains. No need to consult your weather forecast for rain, you can just see it. It’s a bit of a walk to the center of town (at least 20 min), but the view is worth it, & cheap taxis are always an option. Other highlights include the skylight, shower space & the beautiful herb & cactus garden on the ground floor, good for a morning coffee or late night storytelling (we indulged in both with the lovely neighboring guests we befriended on the first floor).
