Known as the “heart of Mexico,” San Miguel de Allende is world-renowned for its colonial architecture and cobbled streets, its food, and natural beauty. Located at 6,400 feet (1,950 meters) above sea level, this colonial gem of a city is nestled on a large plateau among the rolling hills of the Sierre Madre Mountains. With a population of fewer than 140,000, this old silver town 153 miles (247 km) north of Mexico City, has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The main attraction of the town is its well-preserved historic center, filled with buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries, including the Parroquia Church with its pink baroque spires set-amid the beautiful town square. Overflowing with lush parks and scenic walks, San Miguel de Allende is the perfect colonial town to host your Mexican vacation getaway.
