    Such a beautiful and unique cathedral! It’s really sight both during the day and at night! What an experience!

    It was more interesting than I first thought it would be for a lesser known ruin. I did a private guided tour with Coyote Canyon Adventures and loved it. We also were taken to a small ranch up in the same mountains for an authentic ranch lunch which was one of the best meals of our whole trip.
    Also saw some great views of the valley below and the surrounding landscape of San Miguel.

    I highly recommend a visit to the Fabrica La Aurora. It is a renovated factory containing dozens of art galleries, furniture and other design stores, several eating places, and a garden to sit it.

    It's not really a garden as much as a park or square in front of the famous pink cathedral, la Parroquia. It's in the center of town so you will most likely pass through it at least once! What we loved most is that it is still USED as it was intended...as the center of activity where people gather. It's much busier on weekends compared to quieter mid-week evenings, but always absolutely lovely.

    English speaking tour by knowledgeable, master gardener Rene was fantastic! Learned a lot! If sunny bring sunscreen. Save room for their ice cream!

    Known as the Mexican Sistin Chapel for the nice paintings in the celling and walls, but they do not respect the openning times, had to go three different types until I found it open, and even though was a testricted visit. Bad for tourism!

    This place is breathtaking. Richard does a fantastic job of describing the work of his late partner as he guides the group through the property. The work is gorgeous, emotional, and quite powerful. The finale is a quick tour through the first floor of the home. My jaw literally dropped to the floor. Don't miss it!

    Our family of 5 had a great time touring this extraordinary private collection of masks! Housed inside a beautiful B&B, Bill (the owner and collector) is quite knowledgeable, kind, and fun to be with. We spent about 90 minutes perusing the masks and watching some of the video content the shows some of the dances/celebrations that various masks are associated with. We recommend 100%!

    Loved Parque Juarez. Walked and did a little jogging early in the morning and even joined a fun and fairly competitive game of pickup basketball. Lots of pretty, isolated areas to sit and chill, read, drink a coffee, or people-watch. Highly recommend spending some time there whether you're going for exercise or to relax. Super-friendly people throughout the park.

    Great place to get perspective of the beauty of San Miguel. It’s a bigger community than I originally thought and quite beautiful.

    The museum has some great collected pieces. Some displays were very unique folk art. My complaint is that the curated text was very general and didn’t really give cultural context to what is being viewed. A hundred interesting stories could be told, but the visitor is left wanting more. Also, they have a lot of staff who appear to be bored teens putting in their hours guarding the collection. Why not teach the staff to talk a bit about the collection and make the visit more fulfilling?

    The Mercado de Artesanias is a artisan's market in San Miguel de Allende which spans the length of a number of blocks N/NW of La Parrochia. From hummingbirds handcrafted from beads to Oaxacan wool rugs to hand-painted ceramic animals, the variety is dizzying.
    The prices are very reasonable, with the exchange rate to USD to be about 20 pesos. For many of the vendors this is their subsistence, but most are open to a little bit of bargaining.
    When travelling throughout the city, bring a tote bag with you for the goodies that you find. Wear shoes that have a firm sole and hug the feet. When you take a photo, stop-it's all cobblestone and stone and uneven sidewalks. Don't get injured while gawking and not watching where you step. Face plants on stone are not pretty.

    The Zocalo, any zocalo is always my favourite place to visit while in any Mexico location. To see the culture, families and entertainment is always a trip worth taking. This Zocalo won my heart as we stopped for and afternoon of just Watching. This little boy stole my heart as he endlessly chased pigeons all afternoon, while is Dad stayed very close to him. I know of a little boy that would sleep well that night.

    We were told how great the Biblioteca Publica was to visit, and it is with so many great offerings. But I am reviewing their cafe which was fantastic. And while there are nice places to get a good latte, the cafe here was far the best! The menu was diversified and super interesting and our choices were very tasty. Highly recommend this place for a late breakfast. Don't know about lunches but I will assume just as good. The service is in this beautiful courtyard garden as is much of San Miguel.
