Point of Interest
“The second floor sells all kinds of gifts from 15 pesos small gifts to 250 handcrafts. I personally like the mugs they are selling. It is very cheap (40 pesos about?) and unique designed. There is also a place sell coin purse that you can put your name or your friend name on it. However, Guanajuato is a late city. The food market is opened early on the first floor, but there aren't many stores opened before noon on the second floor! ”
