Route through the Towns of the Mexican Independence

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

Start this route full of culture at Querétaro. Enjoy its colonial attractions such as the Templo de Santa Rosa de Viterbo (Santa Rosa de Viterbo Temple) or the old convent of Santa Clara de Jesús, where baroque art beauties are also found. Walk through downtown Querétaro and see its squares and gardens, appreciate the architectural wonders of its churches and monuments. In Querétaro there are important wineries so you can also take tours of their vineyards and haciendas.

The next stop is to get to know Juriquilla. This neighborhood at the north of the city of Querétaro, is a new residential area located around a lake with a yacht club, golf courses and an excellent variety of places for eating and shopping.

Further on, continue to San Miguel de Allende. Take a stroll through its cobbled streets and head to the Main Square, where you will find the Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel (San Miguel Arcángel Parish), the Historical Museum and the Ignacio Ramírez El Nigromante Cultural Center. In the market you can buy typical crafts made of embossed brass and hand-blown glass.

Afterwards you will arrive at the core of Mexican Independence: Dolores Hidalgo. It was precisely here, in the Parroquia de Nuestra Señora de Dolores (Nuestra Señora de Dolores Parish) where the Father of the Nation called the people to arms, therefore it is a site of invaluable historical wealth. Among its main attractions are the old Casa de Hidalgo (Hidalgo House), which is now a museum, and the House of José Alfredo Jiménez, a famous composer and performer. Dare to try the original tequila, shrimp and chicharrón sherbets.

The tour ends in San Luis Potosí. Get to know the cathedral and the baroque style neoclassical parishes located downtown, as well as the Palacio de Gobierno and Palacio Municipal (Government and Municipal Palace) buildings. In the market, try the enchiladas potosinas and the caldo huasteco, a must during this trip!
