Preparing For San Miguel

September 6, 2017

By Tab Byrum

We are getting ready at our house for a vacation in the next several days, we are heading to Mexico to the town of San Miguel de Allende in Mexico’s central highlands. We’ve heard about San Miguel for years and have wanted to visit, we have also been taking adult Spanish language courses all Summer and decided now was as good a time as any to visit San Miguel and put our new found education to use. San Miguel was founded during the colonization of Mexico by Spain and is known for its thriving arts scene and Spanish architecture, the town is a World Heritage Site and has become known for attracting thousands of visitors every year and a large population of Americans, Canadians, and Europeans have moved there where they can get a lot more for their money and enjoy a temperate climate. I wanted to share some images of San Miguel with you while we prepare for our trip in the coming days and I’ll share more photos of our own later. Enjoy!!! (above image via)

The parish church of San Miguel Arcangel is in the center of the city and is surrounded by beautiful buildings and a park. (via)

The main plaza of San Miguel is known as El Jardin (The Garden), home to shops and restaurants. I can’t wait to see this architecture. (via)

San Miguel is known for its cobblestone streets and Spanish frontier architecture. (via)

Flags abound in San Miguel adding more color to an already colorful city. (via)

I can’t wait to see the colorful building fronts in person. (via)

Visitors are urged to pop into and visit the many churches around San Miguel (via)

San Miguel enjoys a seasonal climate year round which lets plants, flowers and vegetation thrive. (via)

Have a great Wednesday!!!

Words are my own.
