Guanajuato State is a very popular tourist destination. Attractions include the Panteon Catacombs which house a number of ‘natural mummies’. The fact that the mummies are on show was as a consequence of a 19th century burial tax, which some people were unable to afford. New mummies are still being added to the collection. The city of Guanajuato has a lot of history and has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
