San Miguel de Allende is central Mexico’s artistic, cultural, and historical destination of choice not only for tourists but for expatriates from all over the world. Founded in 1542, this small yet cosmopolitan colonial city features quaint cobblestoned streets, grand examples of neogothic and neoclassical architecture, important centers of learning, a rich heritage carried out in festive celebrations the year through, and bargain shopping for the region’s acclaimed handicrafts and fine arts. The city’s historical appeal extends into the countryside’s villages, ancient thermal springs, and simple ways of living. This sense of history and tradition can be felt everywhere, including in San Miguel de Allende hotels, bed and breakfast establishments, and boutique guest houses where modern comforts meet historical architecture and style.
San Miguel is home to more than three hundred churches, the most famous of them the neogothic church, La Parroquia, originally begun in 1683 and then added to throughout the centuries. This landmark is to San Miguel de Allende what the Eiffel Tower is to Paris, and is a must-see during your visit. The city is home to international music festivals and the performing arts as well, and the neoclassic Teatro Angela Peralta provides a luxurious setting for world-class performances.
