Big Tourist Weekend in Guanajuato, Easter and the 3 Days Before
North American and European tourists are few and far between this year but Mexican visitors keep coming to Guanajuato Today, the Thursday before Easter, it's traditional to visit seven churches, easy to do in this city. Just for starters, there's the Basilica, La Compania, San Diego, San Francisco, San Sebastiano, the Pardo, Valenciana (San Cayetano) -- well, that's seven already. Mellado and Cata are farther from the center but both are well worth visiting too and accessible by local bus. The people on the streets carrying little yellow flowers have just come from a church.
