Route of the Historic Leaders of the Mexican Independence

San Miguel de Allende, San Luis Potosí, Querétaro, Juriquilla

Start this incredible journey in San Luis Potosí. A city of beautiful viceregal architecture, which can be admired in its baroque and neoclassical architectural jewels, such as the cathedral and its numerous parishes, the Palacio Municipal and Palacio de Gobierno (Municipal and Governmental palaces). Visit its museums and go to the market to savor some exquisite enchiladas potosinas or a caldo huasteco. Making the 336 km (208 miles) journey to Xilitla, where you will find the only surrealist garden in the world.

The second stop of the tour is Dolores Hidalgo, the main setting of the Independence of Mexico, here is where the Father of the Nation encouraged the people to revolt. It was precisely in the Parroquia de Nuestra Señora de Dolores (Parish of Nuestra Señora de Dolores) where it happened, and is therefore the most important site of this historic place. You will also find outstanding museums, such as Casa de Hidalgo. For lovers of the ranchero musical genre, the House of José Alfredo Jiménez and the visit to his tomb in the Panteón Municipal (Municipal Pantheon), which is shaped like a sarape and hat, are a must. Before leaving, you should try the sherbets with original flavors such as shrimp, tequila and chicharrón.

Follow the route towards San Miguel de Allende. Walking through its cobbled streets is like travelling back in time, go to the Main Square, where you will admire the Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel (San Miguel Arcángel Parish), you can also visit the Museo Histórico (Historical Museum) and the Centro Cultural Ignacio Ramírez El Nigromante (Ignacio Ramírez El Nigromante Cultural Center).
