Nice, quick trip up and down to Pipila Monument and the best views of Guanajuato. Leaves pretty much continuously during operating hours.

Behind the theater in the main square, you take the short (and very non-scary) train up and get great view of the city and surrounding area.

I love funiculars and will ride them whenever I have a chance. This one saves you time and is panoramic. One option is to ride up and walk down or vv.

Best way to see the city. Cost was reasonable too. If walking it is a must as you have the ability to go up and see the view from Pipila without a car.

25 pesos up and it is worth it nice little trip up with great views over the city. If you walk down it is a nice little trek down with couple of stairs so would advise getting funicular up and walking back down

I enjoy riding up the funicular to get awesome views of the city. I've never ridden it down, as I always walk in that direction.

We really got lucky because there were only 3 other people waiting for the funicular with us. It was a quiet ride up and a great view of the city. There are shops before climbing additional stairs to the statue. It was worth it.

We went up early in the day as it was cooler and the sun was in the right direction for pictures. After getting up on the funicular there are still stairs to climb to get to the top. Lots of seats at the top, not...More
