Harry and I enjoyed our stay at Paradiso Perduto so much that we decided to add two days to our visit.
Harry explored every inch of the enclosed property…
… to constant jealous barking from a nearby rooftop.
At first Polvoron, the owner’s daughter’s Chihuahua, was very timid, but eventually he and Harry agreed to some basic rules for dogs of very different sizes.
Guanajuato was beaming with visitors attending the annual Cervantino festival.
The police presence was massive, too.
The Church of the Company of Jesus was among the largest churches commissioned by the Jesuits in New Spain. Completed in 1765, it fell in disarray soon after as a result of the Jesuits’ expulsion from all Spanish territories.
Statues of Don Quixote can be found on several plazas of the city’s old town.
At night, the bistros surrounding the Teatro Juarez were packed.
The monument celebrating local Independence hero Juan Jose de los Reyes is visible from almost everywhere in Guanajuato.
