In 1962, a group of young university students formed the first Estudiantina of the University of Guanajuato, where music is of Spanish origin and its purpose is to sing happy tunes for people to listen and enjoy a pleasant melody.
The Estudiantinas form an important part of culture in Guanajuato and are admired by the townspeople who are seeking love that occasionally ask them for a serenade.
For the domestic and foreign visitors the Callejoneadas, or the action of walking on the streets and alleys of the city of Guanajuato, represents a major attraction as they show the unique beauty of the streets and alleys of the city of Guanajuato, places that tourists would not know in the same way as accompanied by the Estudiantina.
The Callejoneadas start at the atrium of the Temple of San Diego, an architectural jewel of Churrigueresque style built in the 17th century and situated in front of the Union Garden.
