Strolling


Everyday
Walking through the narrow, winding streets of Guanajuato is something that has become a tradition in recent times, with the advent of the estudiantinas, Guanajuato’s strolling minstrel groups.
A popular tourist attraction, the estudiantina owes its popularity to a character named “”Tuno””, who creates a world of magic and surprise through romantic, jolly and picaresque music.

Student minstrel groups: La Estudiantina


At the end of 1962, a group of enthusiastic young people discovered the music of the Spanish student minstrels, called the “”estudiantina””, and they got together to sing it. Not long after, with the support of university authorities, the Estudiantina of the University of Guanajuato was formed, debuting on April 13, 1963. Today, Guanajuato has quite a few student minstrel groups which give performances strolling through the city’s narrow streets, and in concerts and serenades.
