A window in Doña Carmen's home went onto an alley so narrow that it was possible, leaning out the window, to touch the wall on the other side with a hand. By using all of his fortune, Don Luis was able to buy the house across the alley.
When the maiden went out on her balcony that evening, she was able to see her lover. Seeing what happened, the father pushed into the girl’s room, and with dagger in hand and a single blow, he plunged it into his daughter’s breast. Don Luis was shocked into silence. Doña Carmen's hand, still in his, slowly went cold. Don Luis left a tender kiss on that smooth, pale hand, now lifeless.
This is the spot where that famous incident occurred. Every visitor to Guanajuato should find this spot and view it. There is no charge for entrance, but it is so popular that you may need to wait in line for 15 to 30 minutes to visit the alley.
