Callejon De Beso

The Alley Of The Kiss is a famous Guanajuato landmark. It is a very narrow alley where the opposing balconies practically touch. As the story goes: She was the daughter of a wealthy Spanish mining baron who lived in the fine house on the right. He was a poor miner of mixed race who worked in her fathers silver mines. They fell in love and when her parents found out, they forbid them to see each other. He then rented a room in the house on the left and when they stood on their balconies, they were close enough to exchange furtive besos. Of course the lovers were discovered and met a tragic end!
