San Miguel Allende is a most original destination for romance. A unique colonial town with a vibrant multicultural artistic community.
San Miguel -as it is known by Mexicans and foreigners alike- is surrounded by agriculture farms and livestock ranches. The mining splendor of the region during colonial times gave rise to its rich architecture with mansions and magnificent churches.
In the 1940´s as a result of the arrival of the National Fine Arts Institute, painting, theater and music found a unique location to thrive and attract domestic and foreign artists giving San Miguel an outstanding cultural level, while keeping a picturesque laid back environment.
A stroll in the downtown area amazes visitors with the explosion of baroque and neoclassic architecture, around its gothic cathedral, which made this city one of UNESCO´s World Heritage site and a splendid location for cultural activities, concerts, performances all year long.
At night San Miguel becomes alive in a unique and contemporary way, with an unusual supply of high quality restaurants and bars with a constant flow of musicians from diverse parts of the world. The large expatriate community and welcoming locals make every visitor feel simultaneously relaxed and enchanted with the life style of San Miguel.
