Museo Regional de Guanajuato Alhóndiga de Granaditas
The site of the first major rebel victory in Mexico's War of Independence is now a history and art museum. The Alhóndiga was a massive grain-and-seed storehouse built between 1798 and 1808. In 1810 it became a fortress for Spanish troops and loyalist leaders. They barricaded themselves inside when 20,000 rebels led by Miguel Hidalgo attempted to take Guanajuato.
