"San Miguel de Allende is a beautiful city, where travelers and locals greet one another daily with a smile," observed an impressed T+L reader in the magazine’s brief on the city. “This UNESCO World Heritage site in Mexico, beloved for its rich arts scene and colonial architecture, also makes guests feel right at home.”

The town has a mystical quality. Its picturesque cobblestone streets and colonial architecture — combined with colonial-era traditions both religious and secular, a spectacular natural setting and the vibrant Mexican culture — are only enhanced by the embrace of all its many facets by both the friendly locals and the diverse, melting-pot population comprised of hundreds of expats, representing 63 nationalities, who have made San Miguel de Allende their home.
Did You Know? - The city dates back to 1542 when it played an important role in the country’s silver trade. And, On July 7, 2008, the city was named a UNESCO Cultural Heritage city, under the title of “Protective town of San Miguel and the Sanctuary of Jesús Nazareno de Atotonilco.” The United Nations agency awarded the city this distinction in recognition of its cultural and architectural contribution to the Mexican Baroque style of art and architecture.
“This is an exceptional accolade for us to receive because we see San Miguel Allende as a welcoming destination where everyone is welcomed to experience a little part of Mexico” said Guillermo González, Director of the San Miguel de Allende Tourism Board. “It is also a great gift as we prepare to celebrate the city’s 475th anniversary.”
