The route that will take you from Jalisco to San Luis Potosí begins in Guadalajara. Enjoy its colonial part by visiting the Historic Center surrounded by wide squares, such as La Rotonda de los Jaliscienses Ilustres (Roundabout of the Illustrious Jalisciences), la Plaza de Armas, Guadalajara and Liberación Square, which make up a cross in the heart of the downtown area, where you can visit the Catedral Metropolitana (Metropolitan Cathedral) which is a symbol of the city, the Instituto Cultural Cabañas (Cabañas Cultural Institute), the Degollado Theater and the Templo Expiatoria del Santísimo Sacramento (Expiatory Temple of the Holy Sacrament). Do not miss the dance performances such as the jarabe tapatío or the mariachi song. Also enjoy its modern museums and shopping centers, and don't forget to try the tequila and the tortas ahogadas.

150 km (93 miles) north, you will reach San Juan de los Lagos. Get to know the Cihualpilli Cathedral, also known as Nuestra Señora de San Juan de los Lagos (Our Lady of San Juan de los Lagos), which is visited year after year by thousands of pilgrims. You can also stroll through the Plaza de Armas with its traditional kiosk as well as the Palacio Municipal (Municipal Palace) to admire its architectural beauty.

Then continue to Lagos de Moreno where you can visit the Historic Center, listed as World Heritage. Discover the charm of its architecture in the Parroquia de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción (Our Lady of Asunción Parrish) or the Museo de Arte Sagrado (Museum of Sacred Art). If you climb the Cerro de la Calavera (Calavera Hill), you will find the Templo del Calvario (Temple of Calvary) whose facade is inspired by the Basílica de San Pedro (Basilica of Saint Peter) in Rome, it is spectacular both inside and out and the view from there is formidable.

The route ends in San Luis Potosí. The Centro Histórico (Historic Center) protects a gallant viceregal architecture, as you can see in its cathedral, in the parishes where baroque and neoclassical styles are combined, and in the buildings of the Palacio del Gobierno (Government Palace) and the Palacio Municipal (Municipal Palace). It has important museums such as the Handcrafts and the Railroad museums. Savor the enchiladas potosinas and the caldo huasteco. Go ahead and travel to Xilitla, 336 km (208 miles) from San Luis Potosí, to see the only surrealist garden in the world, created by the British Edward James; it is a place where orchids and vegetation intermingle with sculptures, like something out of a dream which is worth visiting.
