San Miguel de Allende

A relatively small town in central Mexico, relaxed San Miguel de Allede offers an ideal setting for visitors in search of a bit of history and a great deal of photogenic architecture. Founded in the 16th century by a Franciscan monk, the city played an important role in the Mexican struggle for independence. Forgotten by most by the early decades of the 20th century, San Miguel burst onto the world scene in the 1950s, when it became a retreat for many Mexican artists. Today, a holiday in San Miguel de Allende allows tourists to take part in a thriving arts scene, which hosts countless photography workshops, literary readings, art exhibits, film festivals, and live music performances.
