More to Know

Dolores Hidalgo
In the late 18th century, it was declared a “town”, but not until the latter half of the 19th century did it earn city status, and its historical importance was recognized with the addition of the surname Hidalgo, in honor of Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla. In the wee hours of September 16, 1810, in the Nuestra Señora de Dolores Church atrium, he called citizens to arms to fight for Mexico’s independence.
