Beauty and Tragedy

Known locally as "El Callejon Del Beso" the story behind this doomed couple is as lovely as it is painful. Tourists and locals crowd into this simple but lovely narrow alley where a legend of Guanajuato was born.

Stories tell of the lovely and obedient Doña Carmen, whose repressive father forbade her from seeing her beloved, Don Luis. Not to be deterred, Carmen's lover purchased the house on the opposite side of the narrow alley, and they were able to speak and even hold hands across the narrow expanse. Alas, Carmen's cruel father caught them together and killed her in a fit of rage. Before her cold hand slipped from his, Luis kissed it in a final farewell.
