The Subterranean Streets of Guanajuato, Mexico

On the surface, Guanajuato looks like any colonial city you’d find in Mexico. Located northwest of Mexico City, the municipality of 170,000 is filled with parks, plazas and colonial era churches. It was silver mining that led to the establishment of Guanajuato and the vast amounts of silver in the ground brought wealth and culture to the city. Guanajuato is squished in a narrow valley. Many of its roads are too narrow for cars to pass. The solution? Build a subterranean road network. The underground labyrinth is really quite extraordinary and is open to the public.
