The charming city of Guanajuato in central Mexico has many narrow streets and alleys, but El Callejon del Beso is by far one of the narrowest, so narrow that the balconies of the opposing houses practically kiss each other. And that’s exactly what this street is famous for —kissing. “El Callejon del Beso” itself means “the alley of the kiss”. Everyday, especially during the romantic month of February, hundreds of couples wait patiently for their turn to stand on the third step underneath the balconies and share a kiss. It is said that couples who kiss each other on the third step are guaranteed fifteen years of happiness.
