Your day-trip commences in the early morning, when you’ll board an air-conditioned vehicle at your Santiago de Queretaro hotel. After 1.5 hours spent on the road, you’ll arrive at Dolores Hidalgo and learn of its integral role in Mexico’s fight for independence. Learn of the legends behind the town’s streets and buildings, and visit the house of influential Catholic priest, Miquel Hidalgo, before you continue to Atotonilco.
The magnificent Baroque frescoes that decorate the ceiling of the Sanctuary of Atotonilco have earned the church the title of ‘Sistine Chapel of Mexico.’ Gaze at heavenly depictions of religious scenes before proceeding to your final destination: San Miguel de Allende.
The UNESCO-listed city’s leafy courtyards, cobbled streets, and colorful architecture begs to be explored: browse stores selling artisan souvenirs, learn of San Miguel de Allende’s historical importance, and admire highlights including the modernist Parroquia de San Mighel Arcangel.
Finally, your tour concludes with hotel drop-off.
