Very nice view of Guanajuato Jun 11, 2011
This funicular car is definitively a must in your trip to Guanajuato. It takes you right to the monument to the "Pípila" who was a hero of the mexican independence war who helped burn down the door to the Alhóndiga de Granaditas.

The views of Guanajuato from there are awesome. You'll get some of the best picts of your trip from there.

The cost is very cheap, about 6 dollars for the round trip. You can go uphill and stay as much time as you want and the last ride down is at 9:30 PM.

There are snack stores at the top of the hill in case you are hungry. There is also a museum you can visit.

Pipila Statue and Guanajuato city view point Jul 14, 2011
Wanna see all the historical structures together in Panoramic view? If yes, we have to visit Pipila statue in Guanaguato. A huge status remind the historical feet Pipila did to attack the spanish insurgents, having a rock on his back to protect himself and burning the door of the stoned building.

This place can be reached by a cable car, Funicular from downtown. The ride costs 3USD and cable car entrance is next to a tunnel and behind the Temple of Sandiago in downtown.

Also we can reach the place by climbing the steps or in a taxi by road. A viewing platform built here to see the entire Guanajuato buildings in panaromic view. I have visited this place twice in my visit and capture pictures in day and night to share with my fellow travbuddies.

A must visit place while in Guanajuato, Mexico.
