The Pipila Hill, which overlooks the colorful historic district of Guanajuato like a jewel box, is a must stop for any traveler visiting Guanajuato. Some people climb the hill twice a day to see the beautiful views, one by day and the other by night. In the daytime, the beauty of the colors painted on everything from the baroque churches to the small apartment buildings stands out, while at night, the streetlights twinkle and the gentle, magical scene without neon signs spreads across the foothills.
Guanajuato, a city in a valley surrounded by mountains in central Mexico, has prospered since the Aztec era, thanks to the silver production that still takes place today. The baroque churches and colonial buildings built during the Spanish colonial period with abundant wealth as a backdrop are painted with colorful colors such as red, yellow, blue and pink, creating a unique and beautiful cityscape. One of the most popular ways to experience this historic city like a jewel box is to view the entire city from a small hill or take a leisurely tour through the narrow alleys.
