Alley of the Kiss (Callejón del Beso) - Plaza de Los Angeles, Guanajuato, Mexico

This narrow alley is similar to all other alleys in the area, but is the subject of a story of unrequited love, not unlike that of Romeo and Juliet. Legend says a wealthy family resided in one of the buildings and their daughter fell in love with an “unsuitable” young man. He rented a room across the alley from her bedroom and they would secretly reach out to kiss each other across the narrow width. Now lovers leave love locks on the balcony bars or stop for a kiss.
