A relatively small town in central Mexico, relaxed San Miguel de Allede offers an ideal setting for visitors in search of a bit of history and a great deal of photogenic architecture.
On the 6th (Sun), appreciate the history behind Monumento al Pipila, pick up a one of a kind souvenir at Fabrica La Aurora, and then admire the striking features of Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel. Keep things going the next day: stroll around El Charco del Ingenio, then indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, and then appreciate the extensive heritage of El Jardin.
