  • A lot of people were waiting in line before the opening time. Beautiful patio. The library is old and has no unique features, but i was overwhelmed by the red frescoes from the wall to the ceiling of the gift shop near the entrance. The hotel's café is also nice, but the frescoes of the gift shop are a must see.

  • A must go to place especially for Americans there fo a short time or the winter! You can take Spanish Lessons there, have conversations with English/Spanish speakers! Checkout books and magazines to read, and attend thought provoking movies and speakers, and musical artists! It also has a great breakfast and lunch there! Wow!
  • Always love a good library! Can spend hours here. Large collection of books both in Spanish and English. Staff are friendly.
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Great contribution to the community!
