    Wonderful tour of the Centro with enthusiastic volunteers sharing their knowledge. Proceeds go to the best nonprofit in SMA feeding the hungry children, take note most of the other tours are for profit all proceeds go directly to feeding the hungry children!

    The Biblioteca is a great community resource staffed by volunteers. It offers arts programs, lectures, tours, etc. I participated in a tour which was well organized and informative. The Biblioteca is housed in a beautiful building. The store in the Biblioteca has a wonderful mural ceiling and walls. The store sells books, handicrafts, and jewellery. Sign up for a class or tour or volunteer. Whatever the activity it will enhance your time in San Miguel de Allende.
