Querétaro

The city of Querétaro offers great historical wealth, having witnessed a number of events which were historically significant to the country, in addition to the fact that most buildings depict the colonial Baroque style which is particularly representative of the 18th century. Considering all these advantages, it wouldn’t be at all strange to come across characters who, despite not having appeared in history books, form part of the historical legacy of this magical city.

Located in the Bajío region of Mexico, the capital of Querétaro is just a couple of hours away from Mexico city (Mexico City). It has a warm weather for most of the year, with temperatures ranging between 18 ° C and 20 ° C. It is bordered by San Luis Potosí, to the north, and Guanajuato, to the west, placing it right in the middle of the country. It also borders Michoacán, to the southwest, and the Estado de México, to the southeast.

This beautiful city combines a provincial essence with a cosmopolitan reality, where nostalgia meets the future. These are the foundations which shape Querétaro’s identity, and the identity of its inhabitants, that thing that its inhabitants called “queretaneidad.”

“Queretaneidad” means eating, taking a stroll, and having a good time; it is that folkloric element which is expressed throughout the gardens, streets, theaters, arenas, markets and restaurants. For Queretanos (people originally from Querétaro) it is a lifestyle steeped in tradition; for those who visit this city; it is an experience begging to be discovered.

You can start to experience “queretaneidad” by visiting the Templo de San Francisco de Asís (Church of St. Francis of Assisi) and the Casa de la Corregidora (Mayor’s house) in the center of Querétaro, two emblematic places for you to visit during your trip to this pro-independence city. Next, head off to the majestic Aqueducto de Querétaro (Aqueduct of Querétaro), which is more than four-thousand-feet long.

Before leaving Querétaro, make sure you take a stroll through the alleyways in the city center, enjoy Querétaro-style enchiladas on a restaurant terrace; sample a delicious hazelnut cream and Edam cheese marquesita (a crispy crêpe which is rolled up and stuffed with the ingredients of your choice), and sip on a hot white atole (a typical beverage made with cornflour) from one of the street stalls in the main squares.
