A famous alleyway in Guanajuato, GTO, Mexico taken on May 21, 2010.

(There are various versions of the following story. This is my best reconstruction of the story. My apologies if it is not quite right. Feel free to comment if you have a more accurate or equally valid version.)

Legend has it that a young couple still living at home were secretly dating. The father of the girl forbade her from ever seeing the boy and threatened to kill them both if he ever caught them together. They lived on opposite corners on the corner (rincón) of this alleyway ("callejón"). They were madly in love with each other and just couldn't resist seeing each other. Finally, the father of the girl caught them kissing while leaning over the balconies of their respective homes. In a rage, he killed them both. Now they say that to come to the corner and give your lover a kiss will prove that the power of love is forever and can never be thwarted, even by death.
