Description

About


San Miguel de Allende was founded in 1542 as a catholic mission to evangelize Indigenous towns. However, with the emergence of the mining cities of Zacatecas and Guanajuato, the city was placed on the crossroad of Camino Real, the crossing route of the New Spain and by which the silver was moved. Since then, San Miguel de Allende became a center of cultural exchange between Spanish, indigenous and creoles communities. Today the city maintains numerous religious and civil buildings of Mexican baroque style, as well as masterpieces of the periods between the baroque and the neoclassic periods.
