Colonial San Miguel de Allende

Set in Mexico’s Colonial Highlands, San Miguel de Allende is a long-time expat haven known for its vibrant arts scene, strong influences from indigenous culture, historic centro (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), and temperate climate. It’s a beautiful little town and there is never any shortage of things to do, from theater to live music to restaurants of every cuisine. Here is a glimpse of what San Miguel has to offer.

La Parroquia, the town’s most famous church viewed from a typical cobblestone side street. Vendors selling traditional crafts take up position in the colonnades around El Jardin Principal, the main park in town.  The colorful exteriors of the town's many colonial homes hide treasures inside such as large courtyards and cool colonnades. The courtyard of a restored colonial home. Many feature fountains, gardens, and quiet places to sit. San Miguel de Allende hosts many festivals and celebrations, including La Alborada, which celebrates the town’s patron saint, Archangel Michael. There’s nothing better for dinner (or a late night snack) than a taco from a street stall for just 10 pesos (about 60 cents).
