VILLA MARÍA CRISTINA
GU A N A JU A TO, MEXICO
N E I G H B O R H O O D Paseo de la Presa Boulevard
Villa María Cristina comprises 38 classic, luxury suites and one contemporary-style private
villa. The classic facade and entrance lobby hide an enthralling and diversified luxury hideaway
with restored, neoclassical 19th-century mansions and a typical Bruges maison. All are connected through groomed galleries, patios, gardens and terraces, giving the idea of a small village, plenty of lavish facilities and wide range of activities for a memorable journey. The general design is inspired by Guanajuato's town: Its internal paths, stairs, alleys, Catalan mosaics
and French cast-iron columns.
Welcome cocktail for two, and 30-minute
massage for one, once per stay.
Guanajuato, made wealthy by Mexico's silver
rush, is a delight to stroll through. Bring
good walking shoes for managing the narrow
cobblestone lanes and steep streets.
