San Miguel de Allende

Guanajuato

It is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Mexico and in 2008 it was recognized, along with the Sanctuary of Jesus of Atotonilco, as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Its attractive and cosmopolitan appearance makes it one of the favorite destinations for art enthusiasts. There is plenty of sites to visit, and they all stand out the city’s historical and architectural heritage.

One of the sites that you must see is the San Miguel Arcangel Parish. It has become the hallmark of the city. It is a beautiful temple of the end of the century. Other must places in San Miguel de Allende are the handicraft market of the city or the archeological zone of Cañada la Virgen.

In the market there is a sample of the local craftsmanship made of metals, papier mache, blown glass and more. Its cobbled streets, wooded courtyards, fine architectural details and sumptuous interiors will enchant you; perhaps that is the reason why CN Travel declared it one of the twenty-five best cities chosen by the travelers.
