Unesco World Heritage City
San Miguel de Allende’s extensive history and architecture have quite rightly led to the city being declared a Unesco site. Stroll through the cobbled streets and plazas and you’ll be surrounded by landmarks dating back as far as the 16th century. Visit Casa de Allende and take a look inside the colonial home of the city’s namesake,19th-century war hero Ignacio Allende. Delve into the city’s religious past at La Parroquia, the pink-spired gothic church that punctuates the city’s skyline and then take a trip out of town to the Sanctuary of Atotonilco, where grim murals adorn one of Catholic Mexico’s most important pilgrimage sites.
