In colonial times, Guanajuato was México´s second wealthiest city after the capital despite its small size. Meanwhile Valenciana mine, situated in the hills to the west, was believed to be the decepest silver mine in the world. In the 18th century the mine alone accounted for 60 percent of the world´s total silver production, and for three whole centuries, Guanajuato flourished as the silver mining capital of the world, producing nearly a third of the world´s silver.
