San Luis Potosí, the capital of the Mexican State of the same name, is rich in both colonial and modern architecture and art. The old buildings and landmarks in the central part of the city were influenced by Europe’s many styles of the time, and the new buildings are showcases of modern international design. The city, named after Louis IX of France, was founded in 1592 and is located in the northern area of Mexico's Central Plateau at an altitude of 6,157 feet. A stroll through the old center of the city, through its plazas and colonial architecture, will remind you very much of Spain. Visit the Plaza de Armas with its cathedral and governor’s palace built in 1770, and take a stroll to the nearby Templo de Nuestra Señora del Carmen, renowned as one of Mexico’s grandest churches. If you are in the mood for an afternoon of bullfighting in the traditional Spanish style, the Plaza de Toros Fermin Rivera is just the place to be.
In addition to being a significant historical and educational center in the heart of Mexico, San Luis Potosí is a major industrial and commercial center as well, strategically located in the "triangle" formed by Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey.
