300 km northeast of Mexico City and 2000 m altitude, Guanajuato owes its existence to gold and silver mines exploited by the Spanish colonists. They built a splendid historic center, declared World Heritage by UNESCO. It is also a lively university city with a museum dedicated to Cervantes and a plethora of pretty cool bars.I spent my night at Casa Bertha: a charming hotel in the city center. Only problem: hot water, it must be requested before showering! In the evening, I took advantage of the terrace with a good bottle of Mexican wine that I shared with some other guests (mostly Americans). This place really looks like a stopover for travel writers or for backpackers with its splendid view of the entire city and its very modest price. There is a communal kitchen on the terrace which allows you to have breakfast and enjoy the amazing views.I loved to hang around the city in particular the covered market where you can find some treasures (souvenirs, food …) This little colonial town with Mexican colors was a real moment of relaxation and sharing.
