I’ve taken the funicular to a hilltop overlooking this picturesque colonial city; capital of a central state that bears the same name. With its winding maze of cobblestone streets and narrow alleys, traveling by foot is by far the most convenient method of transportation here.

Every autumn this city is host to an international arts festival honoring a famous Spanish novelist. The festival features recitals, concerts, plays and exhibits from both international and local artists.

At night visitors can follow groups of performing university students, known as estudiantinas or callejoneadas, on a walking tour of the city’s most famous sites. The students tell jokes and stories in between songs, keeping the crowd entertained well into the night. One of the most memorable stops on the walk is a pathway so narrow that two people can lean from balconies on either side to exchange a kiss. Legend has it that two young lovers, living across from each other, were murdered by the girl’s disapproving father when he caught them sneaking out to meet. In order to avoid bad luck in love, couples are urged to kiss on every third step as they make their way through the alley.

Do you know where I am?
