Declared UNESCO World Heritage, this city shows the fancy side of Guanajuato state. Its bright Downtown will make you feel in a dream. It offers all kinds of high-class establishments such as restaurants, hotels, boutiques. Not to mention countless galleries offering the best variety of handmade craft from Mexico.
Also famous for its neo-gothic style: “Parish of San Miguel,” the iconic church with the pink, sugar-candy pointing towers waits for you. These bizarre towers were designed by an uneducated Indian, Zeferino Gutierrez, in the late 19th century. In the main chapel is the much-revered image of the Cristo de la Conquista, made by Indians in Patzcuaro from cornstalks and orchid bulbs in the 16th century.
Close to San Miguel de Allende, there is a little town called San Jose de Iturbide, it owns a beautiful neoclassic parish that is worth the visit.
