Parish of San Miguel Arcangel

The Parish of San Miguel Arcangel, perched atop the city, is one of the most beautiful examples of architecture not only in the city, but throughout Mexico.

Visit Cañada de la Virgen

Opened to the public less than 10 years ago, San Miguel de Allende’s Cañada de la Virgen is one of the best-kept archaeological secrets of Mexico. The original residents of this pre-Hispanic city are still unknown, but it was believed that it was occupied before AD 540 and 1050.

Factory La Aurora

What was once a textile mill from 1902 to 1991 has now become the embodiment of everything San Miguel has to offer for art lovers. Fabrica La Aurora, just a short walk from the Parish, has left traces of its past to set the scene – think oil-stained floors – but is very much all about the present day art scene in San Miguel de Allende.

Go to El Jardin in the town center

The central square, over which the Parish looks, is known as El Jardin, and it is the beating heart of the city. Ringed in historical buildings, with a lush garden in the center, El Jardin is the social center, a place for live music, dancing, congregating – at all hours of the day or night.

El Charco de Ingenio

El Charco de Ingenio is a 170-acre botanical garden that sits within a nature preserve. The garden was born in 1990 as a way to protect the unique natural environment, which has both scenic and historic value.
