The defining element of this building’s facade is its dazzling stone stairway consisting of 86 steps leading to a multi-purpose auditorium, a space dedicated to the promotion of culture and humanities (classical studies) inaugurated on February 16th, 1952.

In the context of the Festival Internacional Cervantino, the stairway is used as an open-air theater with the steps serving as sittings for the crowd, featuring exhibitions of ‘Transmedia Art’, films and more.

Once you’re done admiring the grand University of Guanajuato building and its magnificent stairway, walk a few steps down the street and enter the University’s building to find the Museum of Natural History. For those eager to learn more about the creatures we share planet earth with!
