Discover San Miguel

Hospicio 35 San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico 37700

San Miguel de Allende is ablaze with color. First founded 500 years ago, this colonial city glows with bright sherbert shades. Trickle along the winding cobbled roads. You’ll glimpse breathtaking scenery through narrow gaps in the architecture, as the land curves and rolls around the Sierra Madre mountains beyond.

By day the air fills with the sounds of church bells, the clip clop of horses hooves and, of course, the mariachis. After sunset, the city’s craft heritage comes alive. Electric lights illuminate the architecture, casting intricate shadows across neighbouring facades. It’s clear why San Miguel de Allende is a UNESCO world-heritage site and a shining gem among Mexico vacation spots.
