Once one of the greatest mining cities in Mexico, Guanajuato has a rich
history and it is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The setting of the city is
very beautiful: it stands in a narrow gorge amid wild and striking scenery.
The whimsical trace of its streets, its peaceful squares, gardens,
“estudiantinas” (strolling student minstrels), and the beauty of its houses
and buildings give to Guanajuato a magic ambiance and an evocative and
romantic touch.
Guanajuato, is the cradle of Independence, and invite us to stroll along the
romantic cobblestone streets full of legends and history. The pied pipers
call themselves estudiantinas. They wander the city, playing traditional
music, singing old favorites, telling the city's stories and giving this magic
atmosphere of this unique place.
Theater, dance, and musical performances abound in the city, as well as
museums and galleries. The first three weeks in October Guanajuato
celebrates the “Festival Internacional Cervantino”, the most important
festival in Latin America. It features high-level performers and artists from
36 countries, they present different expressions of art like opera, drama,
and dancing. Mimes and jugglers are a common sight, and strolling
minstrels guide visitors along the city's winding, narrow streets, their joyful
music carrying above high colonial walls.
Temperatures in the winter drop to about 7ºC (45ºF) with mild
temperatures in the summer rising to 26ºC (80ºF).

The city was founded in 1542, this is one of the most beautiful colonial cities
in Mexico. San Miguel has meant the careful conservation of the town's
charming architecture and cobblestone streets, as well as its culture and
traditions, and that is why it has become a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Besides it offers the warm and friendliness of the people, the charming small
cafes, bars, haute-cuisine restaurants and unique nightspots blend into the
beautiful streets of this cosmopolitan town.
San Miguel boasts more “fiestas” than any other Mexican town. There are
religious, cultural or sports events; some of them include international
performances like the International Jazz Festival and the Chamber Music
Festival; and some others are traditional celebrations like the
“Sanmiguelada” (Running of the Bulls), the National Brass and Wool Fair
and the Holy Week, with a solemn procession of the Holy Burial, among
others.
The weather is mainly temperate and dry and its average temperature
oscillates between 16°C (60.8°F) and 22°C (71.6°F), with cold winters. San
Miguel has become a haven for many foreigners, specially Americans and
Canadians because of the excellent weather and the distinctively,
remarkably comfortable, Mexican ambiance.

Celaya is known as the Golden Gate of the Bajio (Low Land), and it is also
famous for its high quality production of milk based sweets. Celaya has
this tradition of producing wonderful sweets since the colonial period. In
modern sweets stores you can learn about the production process and
taste some of these candies like: cajeta, made from boiled goat milk,
brown sugar and cinnamon, chewy candy, lollipops, among other sweets.
You can walk through the fortified walls of old monasteries or dare to
spend a spooky night at the cemetery that houses the Museum of
Mummies.
This important business center, was the birthplace of one of the most
important practitioners of neoclassical architecture, Francisco Eduardo
Tresguerras. An exquisite example of his work is the Church of Carmen.
This city has important buildings that are worth seeing, such as the Church
of San Francisco built in the 17th century and the Augustinian cloister, also
constructed in the same century.
Plaza de Armas (Main Town Square) - A garden is surrounded by nice
portals and important buildings. In the middle of the plaza there is an old and
beautiful gazebo that dates back to 1906.
Presidencia Municipal (City Hall) - The building was constructed in the
18th century and it has some awe-inspiring murals painted by Octavio
Ocampo, a well-known artist from Celaya depicting the Mexican history.
Catedral de Celaya (Cathedral) - Located next to the Temple of San
Francisco, it was restored in the 19th century for the famous architect
Tresguerras in a beautiful neoclassical style.
Templo de la Tercera Orden - It was built in 1820 with beautiful altarpieces
made by Tresguerras. The interior features 18 astonishing stained glass
windows.
Templo y Exconvento de San Agustín - The construction dates back to
1609. It has a Plateresque style with Moorish reminiscences. In 1863, the
property was expropriated and turned into a prison until 1962, when it was
opened as a school for the fine arts.
Convento y templo de San Francisco - This building dates back to 1573
and it has been renovated several times, maybe the most important was the
one made by Francisco Tresguerras in 1715. It is one of the major landmarks
of its type in the country. The interior features Baroque design, while the
exterior is Plateresque.
Templo del Carmen - This shrine is a real jewel that surprises the visitor by
its beauty and the cleverness of its proportions. Considered as the
masterpiece of the distinguished architect Francisco Tresguerras. The
interior has some original paintings made by Tresguerras and a German
organ built in 1800.
Museo de Celaya Historia Regional (Regional History Museum) - The
museum features eight rooms with the history of Celaya. Open Tuesday to
Sunday from 10:00 to 18:00 hrs..
Panteón y Museo de Momias de Celaya (Celaya Cementery and
Mummy Museum) - It was opened in the 19th century, today it is a place in
symbols and mysticism. Next to the cemetery is the Mummy Museum.
Torre hidráulica o Bola de agua (Water Ball) - This is one of the most
important landmarks in Celaya. Since 1908 is supplying water to the
downtown area. It is in a 35 meter high tower and has a diameter of 12
meters, is the only one of its kind in the world.

This colonial jewel known as the “Cradle of Independence”, was founded
in 1610 and it has been named a Magic Town. The town has beautiful
constructions of the 17th and 18th Century like: the Our Lady of Sorrows
Parish, from which Hidalgo (Independence hero), delivered the "Cry for
Independence"; the City Hall, the Visitors House, the Independence
Museum, the “Diezmo” House, and the House-Museum of Don Miguel
Hidalgo with a display of historical objects and furniture.
Dolores Hidalgo is worldwide known for its traditional majolica tiles in the
typical colonial decorated style of Mexico. It is also an important rustic
furniture manufacturer.
Plaza Principal, Jardín del Grande Hidalgo (Main Plaza) - You can have
a nice time strolling through the garden or just sitting on one of the wrought
iron benches, while tasting some typical artisan ice-cream in exotic flavors
such as Mole (chili and chocolate sauce), beer, rose petals, avocado,
shrimp, etc. Around the square there are craft shops, restaurants, and a
famous hotel where President Benito Juárez stayed.
Casa de Visitas (Guest House) – This is one of the most beautiful
constructions in the town built in 1786. The facade is Plateresque and has
six lobed arches on which carved stone balconies stand. The house
provides accommodation to distinguished visitors.
Casa de Abasolo - Birthplace of insurgent hero Mariano Abasolo, born in
1784. It is currently being remodeled to host a museum.
Parroquia de Nuestra Señora de Dolores (Parish of Our Lady of
Sorrows) – It has a carved pink stone facade in the Churrigueresque
style. It was the scene of a historical fact, when on the morning of Sunday
September 16, 1810, Father Miguel Hidalgo, rang the bells and launched
the famous "Cry of Independence" and the call to sedition against the
Spanish authorities in New Spain.
Templo de la Tercera Orden (Parish of the Third Order) – Built in 1755,
is the oldest religious building in the city with a nice baroque façade.
Templo del Señor del Llanito - Built in 1778, features magnificent murals.
Here, Miguel Hidalgo arrived to officiate several masses. It has a small
museum displaying a fine collection of votive offerings, most of them from
the 18th century.
Museo José Alfredo Jiménez – The house was the birthplace of José
Alfredeo Jiménez, a famous composer. There are many artistic and
cultural events. Open Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 to 17:00 hrs
Museo de la Independencia Nacional (Independence Museum) - Built
in the 18th century, it was originally used as a prison. It currently exhibits
popular art, a portrait of Miguel Hidalgo and a tribute to José Alfredo
Jiménez, a composer who was born in Dolores. Open Monday to Saturday
from 9:00 to 16:45 hrs. Sunday from 9:00 to 15:00 hrs
Museo-Casa de Hidalgo – It was built in 1779. It displays a collection of
period furniture and some objects and documents that belonged to
Hidalgo, a leader in the War of Independence in Mexico. Open Tuesday to
Saturday from 10:00 to 17:45 hrs. Sunday from 9:00 to 16:45 hrs
Hacienda de La Erre – Located four miles away from Dolores Hidalgo,
was built in the first half of the 18th century. It is one of the oldest
haciendas in the country.

followers toward battle, took up the banner of the Virgin of Guadalupe as the
insurgency's unifying coat or arms. The church is located just eight
kilometers from San Miguel de Allende. The sanctuary built between 1740
and 1748, is an exceptional work of art in a baroque style and it has been
named UNESCO World Heritage Site. The walls and ceilings of the interior
are nearly entirely covered in mural work, sculpture, inscriptions and oil
paintings in a style called Mexican folk Baroque, most of the mural work was
done by Miguel Antonio Martínez de Pocasangre, ver a period of thirty years.

the Chapel of the Holy Burial (1763), Our Lady of the Rosary and its
chamber (1766) and the Calvary Chapel (1774-1778).
Mineral de Pozos - Once a prosperous mining town, it was abandoned and
is now mainly deserted, it has the atmosphere of a ghost town. Today it is
considered National Historic Patrimony and it has been named Magic Town.
It has some ruins of buildings constructed in the 19th century and early 20th
century. The visitors also have the opportunity to visit an old mine and go
down at more than 200 meters below the surface. The town, however, has
experienced a modest revival as a number of old adobe properties were
restored or built anew. Today the town still offers travelers a combination of
ancient stories, traditions and legends of its inhabitants. You can practice
biking or horseback riding and explore the mines and Cerro Pelon; or you
can go hiking, rappel or just enjoy the contact with nature and learn about the
flora and fauna of the region.
Pénjamo – It is known as Hidalgo Cradle and it is one of the cities with
major commercial movement of the State; however, its main square has
kept the essence of a peaceful village. You can visit the Parish of San
Francisco built in the 18th century. The Pénjamo landscape is dominated
by the blue agave. This is the door to the Highlands of Pénjamo with many
stunning natural beauties, ideal for adventure tourism. Not very far from
Irapuato is the Hacienda Corralejo de Hidalgo, where Miguel Hidalgo was
raised, today it is in ruins. And, also very near from Pénjamo is the
Hacienda Corralejo a famous tequila producer. The installation gives tours

architectural jewel: the San Agustín Church, considered one of the most
important architectural works of art during the vice regal period with a
beautiful baroque style. The interior contains amazing gold leaf altars of 24
carat gold. These altars are said to be the most impressive in Latin
America. Salamanca is famous for its detailed wax figures. This peaceful
city has many attractions like: the Hidalgo Museum located in an old
hacienda of the 18th century, with an exhibition of several paintings and
historic documents related with the bicentenary of independence, (open

The most astonishing construction in the town is the San José Iturbide Parish,
whose construction began in 1866 with a beautiful neoclassical style. This is
the ideal place to practice ultralight aviation and enjoy an incomparable view.
Silao - Here is one of the most visited shrines of Mexico. The Shrine of Christ
the King crowns the mountain Cerro del Cubilete, 2,579 meters (8,460 feet)
above sea level. One of Mexico's most important religious monuments, it
marks the geographical center of the country. The entire building, and the
image of Christ as well, are art deco in design. From the plaza at the foot of
the shrine, one can enjoy wide-open vistas of the Guanajuato plains. Enjoy
the panoramic view from the mountain, and if you love excitement, dare to
take to the skies and paraglide from the mountain. Silao is a small provincial
town full of traditions. It is the birthplace of the Chávez Moreno brothers, and
there is a beautiful museum where you can admire the work of these famous
artists. In 2010 Silao hosted the Bicentennial Expo, and today this is a nice
modern place for leisure and education with interesting permanent exhibits.
Yuriria - Located near the lagoon, the 16th-Century Ex-Covento of San
Agustin is the most important architectural structure in Yuriria. Its massive
size and dazzling structure houses a museum with an important exhibit of
religious objects. The lagoon was the first hydraulic project of the vice royal
era, being constructed for the benefit of the region's agriculture.
The construction of the monastery and the large artificial lake took nine years.
The building is very well preserved. The fortified monastery is accessed
through an elegant Renaissance facade that highlights indigenous features
and opens onto a spacious interior with cloisters, gardens and cells. In the
lower part of the former monastery there is a four-roomed museum with
pre-Hispanic and colonial objects, as well as religious paintings and
sculptures from the 17th and 18th centuries. Open Tuesday to Sunday from
10:00 to 17:45 hrs.
In this tour you can experience the past and the origins of Guanajuato.
The route starts at the archaeological site “Cañada de la Virgen” (Virgin’s
ravine), near San Miguel Allende. It was at its height between 500 and 900
CE. Complex A, also called the Casa de los Trece Cielos (House of the
Thirteen Heavens or Skies) consists of a large "sunken" patio like that in
Peralta surrounded a pyramidal base over 25 meters high. Open Tuesday
to Sunday from 9:30 to 16:00 hrs.
Then is the archaeological site of Peralta, near Abasolo. It was found in
300 CE when the Toltec-Chichimecas cultures started the construction of
one of the major civic-religious center of the area. In the year 900 CE the
settlement was abandoned probably due to natural disasters. The site
features temples, plazas, sunken patios and an interesting space named
“Recinto de los Gobernantes” (Governors' Precinct). There is a stone that
rings with a characteristic sound, when struck with another stone. This
stone was used for communication with the other settlements in the valley.
There is a site museum. Open Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 to 18:00 hrs.
This route ends in Plazuelas, located just west of Pénjamo. The site was
constructed over three hillsides separated by two large creeks. It was
occupied around 600 and 900 CE, and it is noted for the complexity of its
architecture. The beauty of the site may be appreciated in the most
important construction at the site is the complex called “Casas Tapadas”
which contains several large structures and one ball court. In the four
corners of the court were found sculptures representing a serpents and at
the center, as marker a serpent –lizard. The marker found at the eastern
side of the court, depicts attributes of the ancient rain gods, reiterating their
association with fertility. Surounding the buildings are more than 1,000
rocks with petroglyphs engraved on the surface of igneous rock
outgrowths. There is a site museum. Open Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00
to 18:00 hrs.
