The four hour of journey from Mexico City to San Miguel de Allende can be traversed by bus, or you can also rent a car and travel on your own. Around 265 km northeast of Mexico City in the Guanajuato state the city presents narrow cobblestone pathways, magnificent architecture, and a cosmopolitan culture.

Immersed in history and declared as a UNESCO World Heritage site, the city was known as the silver route. The city’s name was coined after General Ignacio Allende, a key figure in Mexico’s War of Independence. Today the magnificent colonial architecture with Spanish overtones is admired by thousands of tourists. The Parroquia de San Miguel Archangel, the city’s tallest building’s façade was brilliantly designed by architect Zeferino Gutierrez. The art and culture have deep roots and you can look out for the art and design centre the Fabrica La Aurora. Explore the eclectic shops like the art galleries, souvenir shops and old stores like the homeopathic pharmacy store Botica De Santa Teresita.

The gorgeous lavender-toned jacaranda trees and the breathtaking sunrises and sunsets make it a perfect holiday destination.
