  • Place with magic, ideal for families, to taste traditional snow cream (delicious) or a pork with skins or by scraping, if you can prove the lnieve of red wine is fantastic, a place to enjoy in couple or family.

  • End of this year we decided to spend it on San Miguel is a town that you should definitely know. The main square and the parish are its main attractions, as well as excellent places to eat.

  • Hands down the best jardin in the area... prices are higher than many other town centers but a beautiful sight, a must visit if you are in the area. Ice cream, fun toys to buy for the kids to play with, and many great photo opportunities.
  • One of the reasons why San Miguel de Allende has been ranked the #1 city in the world. So exotic, and for those who live here, so much like home. Jardín is one of the best places in the world.
  • Lovely place to sit. Many benches and sculpted trees. Small ice cream and other vendors around.
  • A beautiful place to walk and visit, but still needs attention from the people that attend there, need more beverages and more information of the place, more maps
  • Very Old Town. Wonderful sights. Great Culture
